Applying V.I. Lenin’s thought creatively into the Vietnam’s revolution

The strong desire for independence, freedom for the people and the country urged Nguyen Ai Quoc - President Ho Chi Minh to find the way to save the country. He encountered the Draft Theses on National and Colonial Questions by V.I. Lenin. When reading this Draft Theses by V.I. Lenin, He felt moved: “Sitting alone in the room but I just wanted to shout out as if I was addressing to the mass: “My miserable fellows! This is what needed for us, this is the way for our liberation!”

From 25th to 30th December 1920, the patriotic young man Nguyen Ai Quoc (the alias of President Ho Chi Minh during his active stay in France) participated the 18th Congress of the French Social Party in Tours city as the representative from Indochina. Nguyen Ai Quoc became one of the founders of the French Communist Party and was the first communist of Vietnam.

President Ho Chi Minh considered V.I. Lenin’s thought and the lesson from Russian October Revolution as the “magic guidebook” and He comprehended and applied it creatively into Vietnam revolution. He established, trained the Vietnam Communist Party to take the role of leading Vietnamese people to overcome many difficulties and challenges to gain national independence, country union and led the country to socialism.
