Border defence goes on show
More than 300 items, documents and pictures displayed at the museum reflect the Party and the State’s attention to, and the people’s participation in defending the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the nation.
The two-month exhibition also showcases the efforts of border working missions and the results of border demarcation and the planting of landmarks between Vietnam and neighbouring countries of Laos, Cambodia and China.
Pictures of Vietnam ’s activities to defend its sovereignty on the East Sea are also on display.
Visitors have a chance to contemplate valuable items such as Dai Nam Nhat Thong Toan Do (The Map of United Vietnam) drawn in 1834, under King Minh Mang and the other maps of the Nguyen dynasty confirming Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos.
The exhibition was jointly organised by the museum, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Committee of Borders./.
