This is also an opportunity for the Vietnamese community in Luang Prabang, especially the younger generation, to review and understand more about the tradition of fighting solidarity in the cause of the struggle for national independence and reunification in the previous time, as well as in the cause of building and defending the Fatherland of the two peoples of Laos and Vietnam today. Then they will continue to preserve and cultivate the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two parties, two states and the two peoples of Vietnam and Laos.
