Unexploded bombs, mines - War’s tragic legacy

The Hanoitimes - Forty years since the war ended, Viet Nam is still facing the risk of unexploded bombs and mines.

Deputy PM, FM Pham Binh Minh talked about the tragic legacy during his meeting with Zambian FM Harry Kalaba in Ha Noi on Thursday.
The Vietnamese Government has been trying to overcome the war consequences, including the clearance of unexploded ordnance, said Mr. Minh, calling on the international community to continue support for Viet Nam in this field.
Congratulating Viet Nam on her reform achievements, FM Harry Kalaba affirmed that he would actively appeal to the international community’s generosity for Viet Nam’s efforts in cleaning up unexploded ordnance.
At the meeting, both sides expressed their pleasure at the fine development of the political relations as well as coordination and mutual support at regional and international forums between the two countries.
