Story of Uncle Ho lives on in Bangladesh
A translation of a book on Vietnam President Ho Chi Minh by author Vu Ky in the Bengali language was ceremoniously released in Bangladesh Tuesday (June 13), according to a post by the Vietnam News Agency.
The translated release of the book first published in 2013 is part of festivities celebrating the 44th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two southeast Asian nations, said Vietnam Ambassador Tran Van Khoa in a speech at the event.
Ambassador Khoa noted Ky worked as the secretary for Ho Chi Minh for many years and when the president passed away, he became director of the Ho Chi Minh Museum. In his book, Ky recounted his memories and the teachings of the late president in vivid detail.
