His stance on national development was close to realties and tapped the country’s potential.

PM Phuc also recalled that during challenges, Party General Secretary Le Kha Phieu set example and maintained solidarity in the Party, always placed the interests of the Party, country and people above others. In specific conditions, he made constructive, straightforward feedback and dared to take responsibility.

In commemoration of Prime Minister Pham Van Dong, who was also Chairman of the Council of Ministers from 1955 to 1987, PM Phuc said not only the longest-standing Government leader, the late PM was also an erudite scholar who attached importance to culture and upholding its role in national development. He lauded PM Dong for being a talented diplomat and a leader with contributions to State building and management.

In the afternoon of the same day, PM Phuc offered incense to Gen Vo Nguyen Giap, the first General of the Vietnam People’s Army whose name was attached to the great victory against French colonialists and American imperialists, as well as the cause of national construction and defence.
