VN to celebrate 60th anniversary of Dien Bien Phu victory
VGP – A national-level ceremony will be held on May 7, 2014 to mark the 60th anniversary of Dien Bien Phu victory, according to the Office of Government.

Dien Bien Phu victory ends nine-year war of resistance against the French colonialists

The ceremony is part of the bigger program steered by a national organizing committee to celebrate the victory.

On December 6, 1953, in Phu Dinh Commune, Dinh Hoa District, President Ho Chi Minh chaired a Politburo meeting approving the strategic plan to attack French colonialists during the Winter-Spring of 1954.

The attack ended with the historic Dien Bien Phu victory in May 1954, which became a global event that surprised the whole world and helped end the Vietnamese nation’s nine-year war of resistance against the French colonialists.

The Dien Bien Phu victory is also closely attached to the name of General Vo Nguyen Giap, who was the Commander-in-Chief of the Dien Bien Phu Campaign./.
