Nation proud of those who served in revolution


QĐND – Saturday, July 17, 2010, 20:48 (GMT+7)

The nation is proud of its people who served during the revolution, said State President Nguyen Minh Triet.


“These people are worthy of being honoured as they set a good example for the community,” stated President Triet at a meeting with people who had made outstanding contributors to the nation, in the central province of Nghe An on July 16.


The meeting was attended by 300 Vietnamese heroic mothers, revolutionary veterans, pre-revolution officials, heroes of the people’s armed forces, war invalids, disabled soldiers and families of fallen combatants.


President Triet underlined that they are not only honoured because they sacrificed themselves for the nation’s revolutionary cause, but also for the contributions they made in spurring on the country’s development.


He stressed that the Party and State always care about the policies and treatment they introduce to ensure they safeguard those who have served the nation.


“Though meeting with a lot of difficulties, the Party, the State and the people spare no effort to do whatever they can as a way of expressing their respect and to honour fallen combatants and their families, invalids, disabled soldiers and heroic mothers, for the devotion and sacrifices they made for the nation,” said the President.


He noted that it is the responsibility of the current Vietnamese generation and future ones, to maintain and defend the nation’s independence for what so many people sacrificed their lives for.


The President called on the entire Party, army and the people to continue to care for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the nation, including the families of war fallen combatants.


The meeting, co-organised by the Ministry of Labour, War Invalids, and Social Affairs, the Defence Ministry, the Nhan Dan (People) newspaper, and the Nghe An provincial People’s Committee, was part of a series of activities to mark the 63rd anniversary of War Invalids and Fallen War Combatants Day (July 27).

Denmark proud of efforts to secure climate pact: PM

In World on December 20, 2009 at 4:37 am

COPENHAGEN, Dec 19, 2009 (AFP) – Denmark can be proud of its efforts to secure an agreement at the UN climate conference, Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen said on Saturday.

“We made the difference. Denmark can be proud of itself for having built an historic bridge between the parties in the negotiations,” Rasmussen told the Danish news agency Ritzau.


“I don’t think you could find any example in history where you would have seen the leaders of the United States, Brazil, South Africa and India along with the heads of state from Europe and the small island states threatened by global warming all in the same room, working together as a group.”


The Danish premier came in for heavy criticism over his stewardship of the often rancorous 13-day meeting which was due to wrap up on Saturday after a deal was clinched by US President Barack Obama and other major leaders.


Rasmussen said that it was unrealistic to expect Denmark to deliver results on its own.


“I can’t just tell the Chinese or the Americans: ‘Do this or that’,” he said.
