The event saw the presence of President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee Tran Thanh Man along with Most Venerable Thich Thanh Nhieu, Permanent Vice Chairman of the VBS’s Executive Council, among others.

The requiem was an occasion to express the Vietnamese tradition of ‘when drinking water, remember its source’ and the deep gratitude toward heroic martyrs who sacrificed their lives for national freedom and the happiness of the people.

Most Venerable Thich Thanh Nhieu said that during the two Laos’ resistance wars against the French colonialists and the US imperialists, Vietnamese soldiers participating in international missions in Laos always stood side by side with Laos to fight against the enemy while consolidating unions and building the Lao nation.

Vietnamese soldiers considered Laos as their second home and received affection from the Lao people, he noted.

The Vietnam – Lao Martyrs Cemetery is the largest cemetery of Vietnamese martyrs who participated in the fights in Laos and laid down their lives in the neighbouring country.

The cemetery preserves the graves of more than 11,000 Vietnamese soldiers, volunteers and military experts who gave their lives in Laos.
