NDO/VNA - A plaque commemorating President Ho Chi Minh was unveiled in France’s Marseille city on November 26, as part of the activities marking 110 years since the late President boarded ship Amiral Latouche Tréville to France, beginning his journey for national salvation.

The ceremony was co-organised by the Vietnamese Embassy in France, authorities of Marseille city, and representatives from the French Communist Party and La Marseillaise newspaper.

The granite plaque is mounted on a front wall of the French newspaper’s headquarters in Marseille.

Echoing Thang’s views, they said the plaque showed the sentiments, friendship and solidarity of people in Marseille and France in general with the Vietnamese people.
