DIEN BIEN  (VNS) — The A1 martyrs' cemetery, one of three national cemeteries in northern Dien Bien Province, is being upgraded and repaired at a cost of nearly VND54 billion (US$ 2.5 million).

The work aims to make the cemetery's scale commensurate with the significance of the historic Dien Bien Phu Victory in May 1954, according to the provincial People's Committee Vice Chairman Pham Xuan Koi.

The historic victory became a global event that surprised the whole world, and helped end the Vietnamese nation's nine-year war of resistance against the French colonialists.. — VNS
