The 50th anniversary of the National Liberation Front (NLF) of South Vietnam was celebrated in HCM City on December 20 by the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF)’s Central Committee and the HCM City’s administration.

The celebration was attended by politburo member and member of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee’s Secretariat, Truong Tan Sang, former Prime Minister Phan Van Khai, CPV Secretary and Head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Mass Mobilisation, Ha Thi Khiet and President of the VFF’s Central Committee, Huynh Dam along with other Party and State leaders.

In his speech, Mr Dam recalled the establishment of the NLF, which marked a turning point in the southern revolution and was an indispensable part of the history and creativity of the Party and President Ho Chi Minh.

During the 15-year period from the NLF’s establishment to the 1975 Great Spring Victory, Vietnamese soldiers and people liberated all of south Vietnam for national unification, glorifying the national history, in which the NLF played a very important role.

The Vietnamese Party and State always praise the NLF’s significant contributions to national liberation, Mr Sang said.

He asked the VFF to uphold the NLF’s glorious tradition by diversifying activities, promoting patriotic emulation movements and encouraging all Vietnamese people to make more contributions to the cause of national construction and defence.

On the occasion, the Party and State presented the Order of Great Unity to 70 NLF former leaders and members of the Advisory Council of the provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Vietnam and the Alliance of National, Democratic and Peace Forces in recognition for their contributions to building the great national unity bloc, socialism and national defense.
