At a memorial site dedicated to the late President in Xieng Vang village in the Lao province of Khammouane, the local community of overseas Vietnamese brought traditional Vietnamese cakes to put on the altar to remember the late President.

They were joined by delegates from the Vietnamese Consulate General in Savannakhet, the Laos - Vietnam Friendship Society, and the Vietnamese Association in Khammouane.

Delegates recalled major milestones in President Ho’s revolutionary life and memories of him crossing the Mekong River from the Thai province of Nakhone Phanom to Xieng Vang to set up a revolutionary base.

They expressed gratitude to the late President, who dedicated his life to the struggle for national independence and freedom in the two countries.

On the same day in Vientiane, Vietnamese Ambassador to Laos Nguyen Ba Hung hosted an incense-offering ceremony for the late President.
