The show, held by the Lao Defense 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.
