Ha Noi President of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central
Committee Pham The Duyet yesterday hailed Tom Hayden, a former member
of the California legislature, for his role in ending the American
War and restoring peace in Viet Nam.
VFF President Duyet thanked Tom Hayden and other American and foreign
friends in the world for their support for Viet Nam's past struggle
for national independence. He affirmed that the Vietnamese people
always bear in their mind their valuable sentiment.
Tom Hayden, a Democrat, is on a visit to Viet Nam from December 17-27.
Hayden, 71, joined other peace-loving people to visit Viet Nam during
the fierce US war escalation in the country in the 1960s.
He then became co-author of the book The Other Side on the US war in
Viet Nam, which called for the US's troop withdrawal from the country. VNS
