A grand military parade is held to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Dien Bien Phu Victory, Dien Bien Phu Province, May 7, 2024

The parade, held by the Central Steering Committee for the commemoration of the nation's major holidays and important historical events in the 2023–2025 period, sees the participation of around 900 delegates and 270 foreign guests including Lao Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defense Chansamone Chanyalath, Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Neth Savoeun, French Minister of the Armed Forces Sebastien Lecornu and Secretary of State Patricia Miralles.

The parade is the highlight among a series of activities to mark the anniversary, contributing to affirming the significance, stature, and historical value of the Dien Bien Phu Victory and the continuous development and growth of the Viet Nam People's Army, the Militia and Self-Defense Force and the People's Police Force over the past 70 years under the Party's leadership.

The battle in Dien Bien Phu occurred between March and May 1954 under the command of General Vo Nguyen Giap. The victory led to the signing of the 1954 Geneva Accords in which France agreed to withdraw its forces from its colonies in Indochina.

The Dien Bien Phu Victory on May 7, 1954, is considered a glorious "golden milestone" in the Vietnamese nation's history of fighting foreign aggressors for national independence. 

It also marked the complete collapse of old colonialism all over the world, paving the way for the movement of rising up to struggle for national liberation in colonial countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America./.
