A photo exhibition opened in Vientiane, the capital of Laos, on October 25 on the occasion of the 70th traditional day of Vietnamese voluntary soldiers and experts in Laos (October 30, 1949 - 2019).

The show, held by the Lao Defence Ministry, is the first of a series of activities to mark the day.

On display are 168 photos arranged in three sections. The first one introduces images of Vietnamese voluntary soldiers and experts operating in Laos from 1945 to 1954, when the two countries fought side by side against French colonialist invaders.

The second section features the Vietnam-Laos fighting alliance, with Vietnamese and Lao soldiers living and fighting together in the war against American imperialist for national liberation from 1955 to 1975.

The third one highlights the Vietnam-Laos relations during the period of national construction and defence from 1976 to now.

The photo exhibition aims to help the Lao people and international friends understand better the noble international spirit of Vietnamese voluntary soldiers and experts who performed international missions in Laos.

The exhibition will remain open until the end of the year./
