High on the agenda is the discussion on the plots and war-like nature of the US imperialists and the US-backed Saigon administration as they established the Road 9-Khe Sanh defensive line in an attempt to prevent the strategic force reinforcement from the revolutionary rear of the North to the big front in the South via the Truong Son-Ho Chi Minh Trail during the anti-US resistance war for national salvation.

At the seminar, the participants emphasized the stature, significance and reasons for the victory and valuable experience as well as the development of military arts, the main factors that make the Road 9-Khe Sanh campaign in 1968 successful. They also agreed on the lessons from the campaign that can be applied to the current national construction and protection cause.

Earlier, the seminar’s participants offered incense to Late President Ho Chi Minh at the Kim Lien historical relic site in Nam Dan district, Nghe An province.
