Party General Secretary Trong visited the square named “Paris Agreement” which was inaugurated in 2013 on the occasion of the 40th signing anniversary of Paris Agreement, and met French friends. 

In his speech, Governor of Choisy Le Roi city Didier Guillaume recalled that 45 years ago, the city launched a movement in support of Vietnam and its struggle against imperialists and the use of massive destruction weapons, which helped put an end to the inexcusable war. 

He said friendship with Vietnam proves the city’s determination to maintain core values of humanity. 

French friends said though 45 years passed, they are still proud of making part of contributions to Vietnam’s war for justice in the past. 

Party chief Trong expressed his delight at visiting Choisy Le Roi city on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties, the fifth anniversary of Vietnam – France strategic partnership and the 45th signing anniversary of Paris Agreement. 

He extended the most sincere thanks to French friends and lauded the city’s administration for maintaining relic sites linked with Paris Agreement negotiations and signing, saying that they are ever-lasting symbols of Vietnam – France friendship. 

The same day, he met young Vietnamese intellectuals in France, who wished that they would make further contributions to the nation. 

He affirmed that the Party and State of Vietnam always appreciate intelligentsia, consider overseas Vietnamese intellectuals an invaluable resource for the nation, and frequently issue suitable policies.
