The historic site relating to Vietnam’s final victory over French aggressors in northwestern Dien Bien province witnessed a memorial and reburial ceremony on July 21 for 16 soldiers who had died in Laos.

A crowd of people stood in rain in commemoration of the anti-US soldiers during the memorial process, which was attended by special taskforces from the Vietnamese and Lao Governments.

Mua A Son, a representative of the provincial administration and ethnic minority groups, recalled traditional relations between the two countries, which have stood the test of time during the past wars against foreign aggressors.

Also present at the event were representatives from the neighbouring Lao provinces of Udomsay, Luang Prabang, Sayabuly, Phong Saly, Luang Namtha and Bokeo.
