The national political publishing house has revealed the Vietnamese edition of a book on Ho Chi Minh by Thai social activist Suprida Phanomjong as part of a range of events to mark the President’s 122nd birthday. 190 pages long and with 16 chapters, the book reflects the life and career of President Ho Chi Minh while he was in Thailand. The author wanted to show his respect and love for President Ho Chi Minh, whom he met 45 years ago by writing the book. Translator Nguyen Thanh Hoan has this to say ‘Many foreign writers have written about President Ho Chi Minh’s life, career, morality, and personality. However, the focus of this book is on the President’s stay in Thailand, in 1928 and 1929 to send a message of friendship between the two peoples during the war of resistance against the French colonialists’.
