Besides views on solidarity in the international communist and workers' movements, President Ho Chi Minh also advocated solidarity with all nations, and progressive and peace-loving forces in the world.
Introducing his great background and career, Ambassador Vu Trung My stated that in the hearts of mankind, President Ho Chi Minh was an outstanding leader, a beloved comrade, a teacher, and a close friend in the hearts of every Vietnamese person. He was also a great and humble man with erudite wisdom, far-reaching vision, and noble ambitions "giving everything for the fatherland, for the people" in the eyes of international friends.
Sharing with listeners of the live radio program in Venezuela and some Latin American countries, Ambassador Vu Trung My said that from patriotism and Vietnamese cultural traditions, with a great treasure of East-West knowledge, his bravery and rich experience through decades of revolutionary activities, President Ho Chi Minh left a unique diplomatic thought for modern Vietnamese diplomacy. That is Ho Chi Minh's diplomatic thought.
According to the Ambassador, Ho Chi Minh's diplomatic thought is the foundation for Vietnam to consistently implement the foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, peace, friendship, cooperation and development, multilateralization, diversify foreign relations as well as integration into the world.
In particular, Ho Chi Minh's diplomatic thought is also the glue that bind the relationship between Vietnam and Venezuela. During the period of national construction and development, many similarities continue to bind the two countries.
