VIENTIANE — A ceremony was held in Vientiane on Saturday to start a project to upgrade the Lao Military History Museum as a gift from the Vietnamese Ministry of National Defence to its Lao counterpart.

The ceremony was attended by General Ngô Xuân Lịch, Politburo member and Minister of Defence, and his Lao counterpart Chansamon Chanyalath.

Speaking at the event, Lt. Gen. Noethong Phomlavong, deputy chief of the General Political Department of the Lao People’s Army, said the project is of great significance and a new landmark in the friendship between the two sides.

He also expressed gratitude to the Party, State and people of Việt Nam for their assistance to the Lao People’s Army.

Representatives of the Vietnamese constructor Lavinaco 36 Company guaranteed the completion of the project as scheduled.

The project was started on the occasion of the 70th founding anniversary of the Lao People’s Army.

It is estimated to cost nearly VNĐ37 billion (about US$1.6 million) and is scheduled for completion in September this year. — VNS
