80th Birth Anniversary of H#7891; Chi Minh - May 19, 1970

Ho Chi Minh (1890 - 1969) was a Vietnamese Communist revolutionary and statesman. He served as prime minister and president of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.

In 1929 he founded the Indochinese Communist Party. Later, he established the Viet Minh movement that struggled against the Japanese occupation regime and the Vichy French Government members. In 1945, after the Japanese surrendered, the Viet Minh established the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and elected Ho Chi Minh as president. The French Union refused to recognize the new state, hence the Viet Minh fought them resulted in the French withdrawal from Indochina after their defeat in Dien Bien Phu. The Geneva conference decided to divide Vietnam to North Vietnam and South Vietnam. The former remained under the Viet Minh control headed by Ho Chi Minh.

Ho Chi Minh leaded his country in the Vietnam war aimed to unified both parts of Vietnam. As the war continued, he became less involved in the war's decisions and served more as a highly visible figurehead president for the Vietnamese people until his death in 1969.

2nd Anniversary of the Proclamation of the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Vietnam - June 6, 1971

The "Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Vietnam" (PRG) was established by North-Vietnam on June 8, 1969 as an alternative Communist government opposed to the South Vietnamese government headed by President Nguyen Van Thieu. The PRG was recognized as the legal government of South-Vietnam by USSR, PR China and other communist and non-aligned states.

The PRG was envisioned as a political counter-force that could influence international public opinion in support of the unification of Vietnam and in opposition to the Republic of Vietnam (South-Vietnam) and the USA. The declared purpose of the PRG was to provide a formal NLF governmental structure and enhance its claim of representing the Southern Vietnamese people.

In 1973, the PRG delegates signed the Paris Peace Treaty. Following the military defeat of South-Vietnam and the surrender of Saigon on April 30, 1975, the PRG became the government in South-Vietnam and participated in the reunification process of the two parts of the country. On July 2, 1976, the PRG and the North Vietnam were unified and formed the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
