Speaking at the seminar, Politburo member Thuong emphasised that the President Ho Chi Minh’s Testament is an invaluable spiritual heritage and the crystallisation of knowledge, noble morals and style of a great man who had devoted his whole life to national independence and freedom and to the prosperity and happiness of the Vietnamese people.

The Testament is imbued with the humanity and infinite love of Uncle Ho for both Vietnamese people and international friends across the five continents and shows his aspiration for peace, reunification, independence, democracy and prosperity for Vietnam, added the Politburo member.

For his part, Governor of Saint Petersburg, Alexander Beglov, noted that the seminar is an important event highlighting the traditional friendship and mutual understanding between the two countries.
