HANOI- A delegation of KKE, headed by the General Secretary Dimitris Koutsoumbas, paid their respect to the historic leader of Vietnam and the country's Communist Party, Ho Chi Minh. Visiting the Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum in Hanoi, GS Koutsoumbas led a wreath in memory of the legendary Vietnamese communist.
The delegation of the Communist Party of Greece had the opportunity to visit the simple wooden traditional apartment which was Ho Chi Minch's residence for years, as long as the Vietnamese leader had declined to stay in the adjacent colonial presidential mansion. Nearby to the apartment, it is the shelter where Ho Chi Minh and the cadres of Vietnam's Communist Party were working during the US imperialist intervention.
