NDO – An exhibition highlighting the settlement of consequences of war-left landmines and toxic chemicals in Vietnam opened in Da Nang city on November 7.

On display are over 200 photos and objects related to the chemical war in Vietnam as well as the work of overcoming the consequences of landmines, toxic chemicals and environmental pollution.

The exhibition was divided into three major themes: ‘Addressing the environment contaminated with war-left poisonous substances’, ‘Post-war bomb and mine clearance’, and ‘Revitalisation of dead areas’.

Over the past 40 years, Vietnam and the US Governments have made efforts to heal the wounds of war, particularly collecting and treating toxic chemicals and settling environmental pollution.

The exhibition aims to call for social community and international friends to join hands to support Agent Orange/dioxin victims, protect the ecological environment, and revive dead lands after the war, contributing to the country’s socio-economic development.

The event will run until December 22.
