A 350-strong Vietnamese delegation offered incense and paid a floral tribute to fallen Vietnamese volunteer soldiers in Cambodia at their monument in Phnom Penh on April 24.
This activity was part of a trip to “the old battlefields” by those who served in an international mission in Cambodia, war veterans, ex-youth volunteers, former Vietnamese volunteer soldiers, and people who rendered services to the nation’s resistance war and construction cause.
The incense offering ceremony was also joined by representatives of the Vietnamese embassy in Cambodia, the Vietnamese Cambodian Society, and the Cambodian War Veterans Association.
According to the organisers, the trip was aimed at recalling what fallen Vietnamese soldiers had sacrificed for reunification in Vietnam and for helping the Cambodian people abolish genocidal regime and revive their country.
During the trip from April 22 to 24, the Vietnamese delegation visited Angkor Wat in Siem Reap province, and the Royal Palace, the Golden Pagoda and Silver Pagoda in Phnom Penh./.
