HA NOI (VNS)— Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong presented the "75 years of Party Membership Insignia" to former General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Viet Nam Do Muoi at a ceremony in Ha Noi on Saturday.

On behalf of the Party and State, Trong acknowledged the significant contributions made by the veteran Party member to the revolutionary cause of the Party and the nation.

He said that comrade Do Muoi had always shown absolute loyalty to the Party, the Fatherland and the people, while successfully accomplishing tasks assigned to him by the Party, State and people.
