Paying tribute 

President Nguyễn Xuân Phúc offered incense to President Hồ Chí Minh at the late leader’s temple at Ba Vì Mountain in the outskirt of Hà Nội on Sunday, on the occasion of President Hồ Chí Minh’s 53rd death anniversary.

President Phúc was accompanied by former National Assembly Chairman Nguyễn Sinh Hùng as well as incumbent and former leaders of the Party, State, Vietnam Fatherland Front, ministries, sectors and localities, as well as representatives from the Nguyễn Sinh and the Hoàng Xuân families (the late President's maternal and paternal relatives) from Nghệ An’s Nam Đàn District – the hometown of President Hồ Chí Minh.

Fifty-three years ago, on the 21st day of the 7th lunar month, 1969, President Hồ Chí Minh passed away. His testament is an invaluable asset to the Vietnamese people. Realising his testament is the way for the Vietnamese people to express their gratitude to the beloved leader. — VNS
