This is the assertion of Mr. Philip Fernandez, member of the Canada-Vietnam Friendship Association, on the 133rd birth anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh (May 19, 1890 - May 19, 2023).
Mr. Fernandez emphasized that the Canada - Vietnam Friendship Association deeply respects President Ho Chi Minh, who led the Vietnamese people to fight for national liberation and wrote an indomitable page in the history of human struggle for a world without oppression, exploitation and war.
Assessing how Vietnam applies President Ho Chi Minh's foreign policy in international relations in general and in its relationship with Canada in particular, Mr. Fernandez affirmed that Vietnam today is following the right path and policies that President Ho Chi Minh left in his will.
He said that President Ho Chi Minh's foreign policy was based on the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries, recognizing the independence, sovereignty and self-determination of nations and peoples. A flexible and adaptable foreign policy based on principles for world peace and social progress. The member of the Canada - Vietnam Friendship Association expressed his pleasure to see that the relationship between Vietnam and Canada has become stronger in recent years, and hopes that this tendency will continue to be maintained and further developed.
Commenting on Vietnam after gaining national independence and applying the policies and instructions of President Ho Chi Minh, Mr. Fernandez said that Vietnam's achievements say it all. The achievement of national independence under the leadership of President Ho Chi Minh and the Vietnamese Communist Party has helped the Vietnamese people to master and build their own future. Vietnam is also playing an important role in protecting the independence and sovereignty of all countries in the United Nations (UN) as well as in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)./.
