HANOI. — The President of Vietnam Truong Tan Sang said during the ceremony for the 70th Anniversary of the Independence of Vietnam, that the country will continue developing a foreign policy based on peace, cooperation and multilateral relations.

The president highlighted that for fulfilling that purpose Vietnam will follow the principle which states that «Vietnam is a friend, a reliable partner and a responsible member of the international community, » PL reported in its dispatch. 

In that sense, the president made a call for the constant improvement of the efficiency in foreign policy for having a higher position in regional and world scenery, and contributing to keep the peace, stability and development.

In his speech on the occasion of this event which is associated with the August Revolution in 1945, Sang made a recall of the last 70 years and he highlighted that the achievements obtained in that time are recognized by the people of the entire world.

Thus, the president noted the advances that have taking place in the last 30 years, since the implementation of the policy of renewal which has allowed an average income and firm socio-economic stability. And, Independence has brought sovereignty, reunification and guarantee of territorial integrity.   

The president encouraged people to strengthen patriotism and unity to take advantage of the opportunities and overcome difficulties with the aim of boosting national development.

Sang talked several times about the struggle and ideas of President Ho Chi Minh, the Father of the Motherland, who was paid honor by the Vietnamese people in a ceremony held last Wednesday in his mausoleum, among other activities that have been taking place recently.

The speech of the president preceded a parade held with the participation of the Armed Forces, war veterans, workers and representatives of the ethnic minorities, among other social groups.

The parade at the Da Dinh square counted on the participation of nearly 30,000 soldiers and civilians, the German press agency DPA reported.
