Paris, September 16 (VNA) – Vietnam is attending the 87th festival of L’Humanité (Humanity) Newspaper – a body of the French Communist Party, which is underway at La Courneuve Park on the outskirts of Paris from September 15-17. 

The booth of Vietnam features a place for the exhibition of Nhan Dan (People) Newspaper and another showcasing the country’s traditional cuisine. 

The exhibition was opened with Vietnamese Ambassador to France Nguyen Ngoc Son, Lao Ambassador Yong Chanthalangsy and Politburo member of the French Communist Party Denis Rondepierre in attendance. 

Speaking at the launching event, Nhan Dan Newspaper’s Deputy Editor-in-Chief Dinh Nhu Hoan said the newspaper is honoured to return to this year’s festival and it is an opportunity to demonstrate the close ties between the two countries’ Communist Parties, newspapers, and people. 

The three-day festival depicts values of peace and human security and spirit of international solidarity, Rondepierre said, adding that it aims to promote a world of equality, progress and solidarity. 

Seminars at the event focus to address the global pressing issues, including maintaining peace in the Middle East, the environment and climate change issues, inequality and poverty, struggle for democracy and EU reforms.
