VGP - A national-level flag-hoisting ceremony was held at Ba Dinh Square in the capital city of Ha Noi this morning to mark the 76th anniversary of Viet Nam’s National Day.

76 years ago, on September 2, 1945, at the grand assembly on the historic Ba Dinh Square, President Ho Chi Minh reads the Declaration of Independence, proclaiming before the nation and the world at large the birth of the Democratic Republic of Viet Nam–now the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam. - Photo:

True to the path chosen by the Communist Party of Viet Nam and President Ho Chi Minh, over the past 76 years, the Party, State and people of Viet Nam, have tirelessly strived in order to defend independence, sovereignty, unity, territorial integrity, national self-determination, and the freedom and happiness for the people, in the spirit of “nothing is more precious than independence and freedom”. - Photo:

Viet Nam always actively supports and strives responsibly for peace, equal relations and prosperity in the region and the world according to President Ho Chi Minh's philosophy: “National independence must be closely linked to international solidarity, the spirit of goodwill and peace should be used to address disputes, based on linking the interest of the nation to that of the countries in the region, and the common interest of progressive mankind”.
