on 25 June 1955, under the command of the people's leader President Ho Chi Minh, the delegation of the government of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam arrives, on the invitation of our country, in Beijing by private plane . On disembarking the airplane, President Ho immediately warmly embraces Chairman Mao Zedong who has come to welcome him. Immediately, earth-shaking cheers of 'Long Live President Ho!' ripple out like sea waves. In the midst of the the cheering, two Young Pioneers rush over to President Ho, their arms brimming with fresh flowers. During this visit by the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, the stability and development of the friendship of the Vietnamese and Chinese people will certainly be advanced. This kind of friendship will without doubt make new contributions to the cause of peace in the Far East and the world.
