The Geneva Conference: Lessons in terms of national interests

The Geneva Conference: Lessons in terms of national interests

(LLCT) - Sixty years ago, on 20 July 1954, a conference in Geneva aimed at putting an end to the war in Indochina concluded. This was an important event in the contemporary Vietnamese history and was the first time Vietnam had participated in a diplomatic activity on an international scale. Commenting on this event, many confirmed the victory of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRV) while others believed Vietnam agreed to superpowers’ arrangements which were not beneficial to itself and which caused the country to be divided into halves for the following two decades.

Following is a perspective on the event.

Vietnam’s new position in the international community after its implementation of the national report on human rights

(LLCT) - Vietnam’s Human Rights Report was unanimously approved under the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) by 47 member countries of the Human Rights Council (HRC) and in the presence of 93 member countries of the United Nations (UN) and many international and non-governmental organizations on the 20th of June 2014 at the headquarters of the UN in Geneva. The event showed the international community’s appreciation of Vietnam’s efforts and achievements in delivering human rights and marked Vietnam’s steady progress in international integration and human rights dialogue and cooperation. It also implied that Vietnam was a good example of commitment, effort, and achievement in human rights on international scale.

Vo Nguyen Giap - A strategic General and leader

Joining the revolution at 14, becoming a member of the Communist Party at 29 and General of the People’s Army of Vietnam at 37 and was member of the Politburo, Secretary of the Central Military Commission, Standing Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defence, Commander-in-chief of the army and National Assembly Deputy, Vo Nguyen Giap devoted his entire life to the revolutionary cause of the Party and nation. He followed Ho Chi Minh’s national salvation path as well as his morality. He was public-spirited and talented yet modest. He mastered the art of war yet respected and loved every person and his or her fate. He was a famous general yet a simple, friendly and sympathetic person. His life, career and personality have gone down and will go down in the country’s history and have stayed and will stay in people’s hearts forever.
