This is the first activity of Deputy Prime Minister Quang during his official friendly visit to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela from April 17-19.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. Quang emphasized that President Ho Chi Minh is the national liberation hero of Vietnam in the 20th century, the founder of the Communist Party of Vietnam, giving birth to the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the first Foreign Minister of Vietnam. He was honored by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a distinguished cultural celebrity.

The presence of the Monument of President Ho Chi Minh in the capital Caracas demonstrates the prestige, stature as well as the respect and love of the Venezuelan people for him, the Deputy Prime Minister said.

According to Deputy Prime Minister Quang, the Vietnamese delegation's visit to Venezuela aimed to further deepen the friendship and cooperation with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, contributing to peace, cooperation, development and progress of the two peoples and the world. This is also President Ho Chi Minh’s thought in his Declaration of Independence in 1945.

Deputy Prime Minister Quang respectfully thanked the government of Venezuela and the capital Caracas, PSUV Party, socio-political forces and local people for supporting the construction and preservation of President Ho Chi Minh Monument here.

She reaffirmed the feelings, solidarity and understanding of the Venezuelan people towards Vietnam; and expressed her wish that the relationship between the two countries continue to develop sustainably in the future.
