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.

During his years serving as Party General Secretary, Do Muoi, together with the Party Central Committee, Politburo and Secretariat, directed the Party, people and armed forces to implement the policy on renovation, national construction and defence, Trong said.

Speaking at the ceremony, the former General Secretary said he was honoured to receive the award. He vowed to stay faithful to the Party and do his best to protect it.

"In my 75 years standing in the Party's ranks, I have had the honour of contributing my small part to the cause of the Party and the nation. Now I am almost 100 years old and I can say that I have stayed true to the oath I made when I joined the Party 75 years ago," Muoi said. — VNS
