QUANG TRI ( VNS) — Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong yesterday checked preparations for Party congresses in the central province of Quang Tri.
While touring Vinh Thuy Commune in Vinh Linh District, one of the first three local communes recognised as new-style rural areas, the Party chief agreed with its future development agenda.
He said it had been guided by sound and clear-sighted Party leadership, "a decisive factor in every revolutionary triumph".
"The Party and the masses are inseparable," he said. Without the masses, the Party has no strength, while the masses cannot march forward without the Party's leadership."
Earlier, the leader paid tribute to thousands of heroic martyrs at Quang Tri ancient citadel.
As a special national relic site, the citadel has gone down into national history as a symbol of bravery after local military units and people fought for 81 days against enemy troops (June 28- September 16, 1972).
This contributed to the success of the Paris talks and the 1975 Spring Campaign which ultimately brought about the liberation of the southern region and national re-unification. — VNS
