Speaking at the event, held by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, journalist Ha Dang, former spokesperson of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Vietnam, highlighted the creative diplomacy guided by President Ho Chi Minh’s thoughts at that time.

Lasting for four years, eight months and 14 days, with 202 open meetings and 45 retreats between Vietnam and the US, the Paris Conference was the longest in the history of global diplomacy, with the signing of the Accords on January 27, 1973.

Ambassador Pham Quang Vinh, former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and former head of SOM ASEAN Vietnam, said Vietnam used diplomacy based on national independence, international law and the spirit of justice.

This provided a valuable lesson for building foreign policy, he said.

Nguyen Duy Nien, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, said Vietnam applied President Ho Chi Minh’s diplomatic ideology during the negotiations, saying under the agreement, the US committed to respecting independence, reunification and territorial integrity of Vietnam.

The agreement is the most comprehensive legal document recognizing Vietnam’s fundamental rights, he said.
