NDO - A photo exhibition entitled ‘The first National Assembly (NA) delegation’s friendly visit to France in 1946 – A symbol of aspiration for peace’ opened on Ho Chi Minh Book Street on March 18.

Nearly 200 valuable photos and documents on the friendly visit made by the Vietnamese parliamentarians to France from April 16 to May 23, 1946, which are kept at the National Archives Centre No. 2, are on display at the exhibition.

The exhibits are arranged in chronological order of the visit, starting from the Vietnamese NA delegation’s departure for Paris to their activities during the visit.

Made at the invitation of the French Republic’s National Assembly, the trip was the first overseas diplomatic activity of the first legislature of the then Democratic Republic of Vietnam (now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam).

Led by then deputy head of the NA Standing Committee Pham Van Dong, the visit illustrated the strong will and aspiration for peace of the nation, Party and Government.

The exhibition, co-organised by the Vietnam State Archives and Records Department under the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Information Department under the NA Office, will run until March 24 on Nguyen Van Binh street, Ben Nghe ward, district 1.
