HÀ NỘI — The Vietnam Peace Committee has released a book titled Việt Nam – Aspiration for Peace to demonstrate the people’s aspiration for peace.
Published by the National Politics-Truth Publishing House, the book is divided into three parts featuring research material on peace issues and Vietnamese people's peace ideology.
It features a collection of articles based on theoretical, political, historical and economic perspectives of many authors.
The first part of the book features various aspects of peace and war in different periods. Thoughts on peace in Việt Nam are also included.
The second part consists of a series of articles on the Party's views and policies on Việt Nam’s peace.
The third section addresses issues of the international peace and solidarity movements as well as the current struggle for peace of the Vietnamese people.
Speaking at the launch ceremony on Thursday, vice chairman of the National Assembly and Chairman of the Vietnam Peace Committee Uông Chu Lưu emphasised peace was the most sacred desire of humans, especially for Việt Nam – the country has gone through many wars to defend the national independence.
Vietnamese people truly understand the value of peace. It has become the life of everyone and so many generations, he said.
Lưu said protecting peace, defending independence, sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity of the country, stabilising political-social security and creating a peaceful and stable environment for the development of the country was the responsibility of the Party, the army and the people. — VNS
