The event was held by the Army Radio - Television Centre under the General Department of Politics of the Vietnam People's Army (VPA).

It affirmed that Dien Bien Phu was not only Vietnam's own victory, but also an event which “resounded across the five continents and shook the globe”, and awakened other nations to rise up to defeat colonialism throughout Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

According to VNA, the reports screened at the programme, and analysis by history researchers, witnesses and historians in both Vietnam and France explained why Dien Bien Phu was chosen as the decisive battle between the Vietnamese army and the French colonialists.

They also affirmed that the sound leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam and President Ho Chi Minh, the great national unity and the strength of the VPA were basic factors contributing to the nation’s great victory./.
