PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc offered incense at the Dong Da Mound special national relic site in Hanoi on Feb 15 evening (the fourth day of the Lunar New Year) to mark the 232nd anniversary of the Ngoc Hoi - Dong Da victory over the Chinese Qing invaders.

The Ngoc Hoi - Dong Da victory has also gone down in Vietnamese history as an immortal and epic struggle for national construction and defense. Dong Da Mound was the site of many fierce battles between King Quang Trung's soldiers and Chinese invaders 232 years ago.

This year, due to the complicated development of the Covid-19 pandemic, Hanoi stopped the Dong Da Mound Festival on the 5th day of the Lunar New Year like every other years. The ceremony to offer flowers and incense in tribute to King Quang Trung-Nguyen Hue by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has been carried out in accordance with regulations on Covid-19 epidemic prevention.
