Speaking at the opening ceremony, Deputy Defense Minister of Laos, Senior Lieutenant General Vongkham Phommakone emphasized that the victory is one of the most glorious in the history of the Vietnamese people's struggle against foreign invaders.

He emphasized that the victory not only opened a new era in the national liberation movement of the Lao military and people but also played an important role in the Laos-Vietnam combat alliance and became a prominent symbol of the spirit of great friendship and special solidarity between Laos and Vietnam.

The exhibition will run until May 31./.
