Vietnamese Party leader Nguyen Phu Trong stressed the significance of the revolution, saying all the victories of the Vietnamese revolution were linked to the Russian October Revolution and wholehearted support and assistance of the people of the Soviet Union.

Mr. Trong noted that Vietnam’s great achievements over the past 30 years of reform were results of the creative application of Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh Thought, emphasizing that these achievements testify to the vitality of Vietnam’s socialism.
