"Important keys"

In an article titled “Dien Bien Phu Victory: Lasting Resonance”, Voces Del Periodista - an academic forum and the voice of Mexican journalists, said that changing the combat motto from "fight quickly, win quickly" to “strike firmly and advance firmly" was considered the most dramatic turning point in the history of the resistance war against the French.

Voces Del Periodista affirmed that the decision to change the operational motto is considered a historic decision in a historic campaign, reflecting a sharp military thinking process and flexible and creative practical handling. This was also the "key", the decisive factor to ensure the victory of the Dien Bien Phu campaign.

Opening the article on Voces Del Periodista, Mouris Salloum George stated that after 56 days and nights of resilient fighting, the Vietnamese army and people, under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam and President Ho Chi Minh, overcame all challenges to destroy the strongest military base of the French colonialists in Indochina. After 70 years, the echoes of the victory of Dien Bien Phu still resound like an immortal epic of the 20th century.

In the article, Mouris Salloum George clearly pointed out that one of the decisive factors of the Dien Bien Phu Victory was the solidarity of the Vietnamese people.

According to journalist Mouris Salloum George, this is the power of a people's war launched and led in a wonderful and skillful way, bringing great encouragement to oppressed peoples to stand up for independence, including many countries in Africa and Latin America.

An important turning point for Vietnamese revolution

Referring to President Ho Chi Minh, journalist Mouris Salloum George recounted the event on March 11, 1954, 2 days before the campaign opening, President Ho Chi Minh sent a letter to the soldiers, encouraging them to overcome all the difficulties and hardships to fulfill the glorious task. President Ho Chi Minh's message was a great spiritual encouragement, having a strong impact on the morale of the Vietnamese army and people.

At the end of the article, Voces Del Periodista - a forum of 45,000 professional journalists in Mexico, affirmed that the Dien Bien Phu victory created an important turning point for the Vietnamese Revolution, leading to the signing of the Geneva Agreement to end the war, restoring peace in the Indochina region, creating the basis and conditions for Vietnam to advance to victory in the resistance war against America.

The historic victory of Dien Bien Phu also showed the outstanding maturity of the Vietnam People's Army. Under the leadership of the Party and President Ho Chi Minh, this army has continuously grown. This was also the premise for 21 years later, Vietnam continues to win the war for independence and unification of the country./.
