HA NOI (VNS)— President Truong Tan Sang was in attendance on Saturday when a temple was dedicated to the late Party General Secretary Le Duan in Cam Xuyen District of central Ha Tinh Province.

Le Duan was a founding member of the Indochinese Communist Party in 1930 and later became Party General Secretary in 1976, a position he retained until his death 10 years later. Le Duan was born into a patriotic family on April 7, 1908 in Bich La Village, Trieu Dong Commune, Trieu Phong District of central Quang Tri Province, though his home village is in Cam Xuyen District, Ha Tinh Province.

During his revolutionary career, the former leader displayed a special sentiment towards the people of Ha Tinh Province. Local leaders and people built the temple, whose construction started in 2011, to honor the great leader.

While in the province, President Truong Tan Sang also met with key provincial leaders, where he expressed pleasure over Ha Tinh's development, its high growth rate and successful implementation of a program to build new rural areas. The President said he believed that the province would achieve greater success in the reduction of poverty and in its ongoing socio-economic development. — VNS
