Kien Giang (VNA) – A ceremony was held in southern Kien Giang province on December 24 to mark the 40th anniversary of the Ta Lon landing-by-sea campaign – a milestone in the victory against the Pol Pot genocidal regime in Cambodia.
After the resistance war against the US imperialists succeeded in 1975, the three Indochinese countries entered a new revolutionary period.
However, in Cambodia, the Pol Pot regime incited hostility inside the country and towards Vietnam and carried out a brutal genocidal policy. From 1975 to 1978, they imprisoned and killed millions of innocent civilians and thousands of revolutionists, attacked Phu Quoc and Tho Chu islands of Vietnam, repeatedly infiltrated Vietnam’s border, and triggered armed conflicts with Vietnam.
