The Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU) and the Cambodian Women for Peace and Development (CWPD) organised an exchange in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang on February 23 to mark the 40th anniversary of the victory of Vietnam’s southwest border defence war and the fall of the genocidal Pol Pot regime.

In her remarks at the event, VWU Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Thu Ha recalled the Vietnamese people and military’s efforts in the fight to protect the national southwest border as well as their support for the Cambodian people in liberating the nation from the genocidal regime.

After Phnom Penh was liberated, VWU sent many experts to Cambodia to help Cambodian women to consolidate and develop their union during 1979-1988, she added.

Meanwhile, CWPD Vice President Mean Som An said that the historic victory on January 7, 1979 is a joint victory of the people and armies of Vietnam and Cambodia, as well as a significant milestone in the Vietnam-Cambodia traditional relations.

She added that the exchange provided a chance for both sides to look back at history, thus deepening the comprehensive and stable cooperation and sound neighbourliness between the two countries.

On the occasion, the VWU and CWPD presented gifts to former Vietnamese voluntary soldiers who fought in the Cambodian battlefield. Kien Giang province’s leaders presented five scholarships, each worth 1 million VND (43.11 USD), to Cambodian students who are studying at Kien Giang University. -VNA

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
