At the requiem

Participants at the requiem also commemorated heroes and soldiers and those who sacrificed their lives to defend national peace, freedom, sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Former Vice State President Truong My Hoa said though the Vietnamese Buddhist Association in the RoK has been established for more than a year, it has held a lot of activities to promote solidarity in the overseas Vietnamese community.

She called on the RoK government and Buddhist authorities, and the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha to continue supporting the association to develop stronger.
