The ceremony drew Deputy Defence Minister Senior Lieutenant General Vo Minh Luong, representatives of the Quang Binh provincial People’s Committee, the Military Region 4 High Command and the Lao province of Khammouane, along with local people.

They offered incense and flowers to the martyrs, showing gratitude to the ones who laid down their lives for the independence and reunification of Vietnam, as well as the liberation of Laos.

The remains were discovered and gathered during the 2023-2024 dry season by Team 589 under the Quang Binh Military Command with support from the authorities and people of Khammouane province.

The ceremony is the 45th of its kind that Quang Binh has organised to receive the remains of Vietnamese volunteer soldiers and experts repatriated from Laos./.
