A Vietnamese delegation led by Vo Van Thuong, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union, has actively contributed to the success of the 17th World Festival of Youth and Students (WFYS) which closed in South Africa on December 21.


It highlighted Vietnam’s efforts to promote the world youth and students movement for peace, national independence, democracy and social progress.


At the festival, the Vietnamese delegation held 39 bilateral meetings with leaders from youth organizations of many countries and delivered reports at 80 seminars, conferences and international solidarity forums.


One of the reports that drew loud applause from leaders of WFYS 17, is related to the international tribunal against the imperialist use of Agent Orange during the war in Vietnam and its severe and long-lasting consequences on civilians.


In his closing speech, the President of the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) Julius Malema emphasised the success of the WFYS 17 as part of the struggle to defeat imperialism for a world of peace, solidarity and social transformation.


Mr Melema said that the festival brought into play the active role of young generations in fighting imperialism and strengthening solidarity and friendship among the progressive youths in the world. He also voiced support for the Cuban people, peace on the Korean peninsula and peace for Zimbabwe and other African nations.


He called for co-ordinated efforts in the struggle against imperialism for a world of peace without nuclear weapons and an international system based on social justice, national sovereignty, independence, freedom, security, solidarity and international cooperation.


He spoke highly of the Vietnamese people’s victories in the past struggle against US imperialists and their socio-economic achievements in the current process of socialist construction, considering them as valuable lessons for progressive and revolutionary forces in the world.
