    TEN years have elapsed since the founding of the glorious South Viet Nam National Front for Liberation. It is with great excitement that we people of the capital are today holding this grand rally in celebration of this historic occasion. We are particularly glad that the Delegation of the Central Committee of the South Viet Nam National Front for Liberation led by Head of the Delegation Dang Tran Thi has come to our country to join us in celebrating this brilliant festival, bringing with them the fraternal sentiments of the south Vietnamese people and the happy tidings of victory. On behalf of the Communist Party of China, the Chinese Government and people, I express the sincerest congratulations and highest respects to the heroic south Vietnamese people fighting at the forefront of the struggle against U.S. aggression.
   Today, we are honoured by the presence of the Cambodian Head of State Samdech Norodom Sihanouk and Mme. Sihanouk and Prime Minister of the Royal Government of National Union of Cambodia Samdech Penn Nouth and Mme. Penn Nouth. Also present at this rally are the heads of diplomatic missions of various countries and many other distinguished foreign guests. We express warm welcome to them.
   Ten years ago, the South Viet Nam National Front for Liberation gloriously came into being amidst the revolutionary storms of the south Vietnamese people's struggle against U.S. imperialism at a crucial moment when U.S. imperialism was stepping up its aggression against south Viet Nam. Holding high the great banner of the struggle against U.S. aggression and for national salvation, fully mobilizing the people, firmly relying on them and waging a people's war, the South Viet Nam National Front for Liberation has pushed the south Vietnamese people's liberation struggle to a completely new historical stage and performed great illustrious deeds for the south Vietnamese people.
   In the past ten years, the heroic south Vietnamese people under the staunch leadership of the South Viet Nam National Front for Liberation, displaying the revolutionary spirit of "firm resolve to fight and win," have waged long arduous struggles against U.S. imperialism, the most ferocious imperialism of the world, and achieved one brilliant victory after another. Under the heavy blows of the south Vietnamese people, the dictatorial regime of the Ngo Dinh Diem clique, a faithful lackey of U.S. imperialism, collapsed; the so-called "special warfare" in which the United States supplies the money, guns and advisers and the south Vietnamese puppets the men has gone utterly bankrupt; in the past six years or so, the direct armed aggression by several hundred thousand U.S. troops has likewise ended in ignominious failure. Through long arduous battles, the South Vietnamese People's Armed Forces are growing stronger daily, the liberated areas are being constantly consolidated, the political struggle of the people in the enemy-occupied areas against the U.S.-puppet rule is developing daily. The South Viet Nam National Front for Liberation and the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Viet Nam have won increasingly broad international sympathy and support.
  
The ten years since the birth of the South Viet Nam National Front for Liberation are years in which the south Vietnamese people have fought bloody battles with courage and tenacity and years in which they have been advancing from victory to victory on the broad road of the struggle against U.S. aggression and for national salvation.
   Resolutely following their great leader President Ho Chi Minh's teaching "all for a victorious fight against the U.S. aggressors," the heroic north Vietnamese people, fearing neither hardships nor sacrifices and carrying on production and battle at the same time, have waged unyielding struggles against U.S. imperialism and won brilliant victories. Although U.S. imperialism has carried out wanton bombings against north Viet Nam and resorted to all sorts of vicious means of destruction, socialist Democratic Republic of Viet Nam has always stood firm at the southeastern outpost in Asia and has become a staunch bulwark for the fight against U.S. imperialism.
   The practice of the Vietnamese people's struggle provides an eloquent proof that the awakened revolutionary people are invincible and that so long as they dare to take up arms, persevere in struggle and constantly sum up experience in the struggle, they can grow from small and weak beginnings into large and strong forces and win the victory of the war against aggression. All seemingly powerful aggressors are paper tigers which can be defeated, no matter how many aircraft and guns and what kind of modern weapons they possess.
   By their great victories in the war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation, the Vietnamese people have not only smashed U.S. imperialism's plan for aggression and upset its counter-revolutionary global strategic plan, but also greatly pinned down and weakened its aggressive forces and spurred the American, people's struggle against the reactionary rule of U.S. imperialism, thus making tremendous contributions to the struggle of the people of the whole world against U.S. imperialism and setting a brilliant example for the oppressed nations and people in their struggle for liberation.
   Since the beginning of this year, profound changes have taken place in the revolutionary situation in Indo-China. The Vietnamese people have repeatedly smashed the U.S.-puppet "pacification program," bringing to nought the Nixon government's scheme of "Vietnamization." Persevering in battle and destroying the enemies valiantly, the patriotic Laotian armymen and people have further consolidated and expanded the liberated areas. The U.S. imperialist subversion and aggression against Cambodia have kindled the raging flames of the Cambodian people's war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation. Under the wise leadership of Head of State Samdech Norodom Sihanouk, the Cambodian people, fighting valiantly, have liberated two-thirds of their territory, dealing heavy blows at the U.S. aggressors and their lackeys the Lon Nol-Sirik Matak-Son Ngoc Thanh clique. Holding high the militant banner of the Summit Conference of the Indo-Chinese Peoples, the three peoples of Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia, fighting shoulder to shoulder with one heart and one mind, have brought about an excellent situation through battle. The various schemes of U.S. imperialism and its accomplices for sabotaging the Indo-Chinese people's struggle against U.S. imperialism have gone bankrupt one after another. U.S. imperialism is heavily besieged by the three peoples of Indo-China.
   However, U.S. imperialism is not reconciled to its defeat and is conducting desperate struggles. Of late, the Nixon government has brazenly carried out barbarous raids and made outrageous war clamours against the Democratic Republic of Viet Nam; it has intensified its wanton bombings of the liberated areas .in Laos; it has provided the Lon Nol traitorous clique with a huge sum of war funds and driven more south Vietnamese puppet troops to invade Cambodia, in a vain attempt to cow the Vietnamese people and all the three peoples of Indo-China. The Chinese people's great leader Chairman Mao has pointed out: "In the world of today, who actually fears whom? It is not the Vietnamese people, the Laotian people, the Cambodian people, the Palestinian people, the Arab people or the people of other countries who fear U.S. imperialism; it is U.S. imperialism which fears the people of the world. It becomes panic-stricken at the mere rustle of leaves in the wind." The war threats of the Nixon government, far from showing its strength, arc simply an indication of its weakness and its fear of the three peoples of Indo-China. We are deeply convinced that the three peoples of Indo-China, united as one and persevering in protracted people's war, will certainly smash the military adventures of U.S. imperialism and win complete victory in their war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation.
   The present international situation is getting better and better. All the countries and people of the world that desire independence, liberation and revolution are rising one after another to oppose U.S. imperialism and all its lackeys. The national-liberation movements in Asia, Africa and Latin America, the people's revolutionary struggles in North America, Europe and Oceania, and the struggles of people of different countries against the hegemony of the superpowers and for the defence of national independence and state sovereignty have converged into a mighty and irresistible revolutionary torrent.
   Fiercely pounded by the revolutionary tide of the people of the world, U.S. imperialism is beset with troubles both at home and abroad and riddled with innumerable contradictions. In order to extricate itself from crises and seek a way out, the Nixon government has employed even more sinister and cunning counter-revolutionary tactics to suppress and sabotage the revolutionary struggle of the people of various countries. It is buying over traitors and plotting subversive schemes everywhere and is feverishly pushing its policy of "using Asians to fight Asians" and "using Africans to fight Africans," in a vain attempt to realize its wild design for world domination 'with the United States supplying the money and other people providing the cannon-fodder.
   But such stuff of U.S. imperialism has been seen through by the people of the whole world. Committing aggression and making enemies for itself everywhere, it has met with even stronger resistance from the people of the whole world. On the Indo-China Peninsula, it is feverishly engaged in "Vietnamizalion" of its war of aggression against Viet Nam, in "Laotianization" of its war of aggression against Laos and in "Cambodiunization" of its war of aggression against Cambodia and, as a result, it is bogged down ever deeper in the Indo-China quagmire, all the more unable to extricate itself. It is stepping up its collusion with the reactionary Sato government in an attempt to push Japanese militarism to the fore for aggression in Asia, and has thus aroused the high vigilance and resolute opposition of the people of Japan, Korea and other Asian countries. It is giving energetic support to Israeli Zionism for aggression against the Arab countries and instigating the reactionary forces in Jordan to wantonly suppress the Palestinian guerrillas, thus causing the Palestinian and other Arab people to further strengthen their unity and wage still more resolute struggles. It supported the Portuguese colonialist authorities in dispatching large numbers of mercenaries to carry out piratical invasion of Guinea, but has met with head-on blows by the Guinean people and universal condemnation by the African people and the people of the whole world. Through the instrumentality of the United Nations, it has wantonly attempted to encroach upon the sovereignty of Latin American countries and the right over their territorial sea, and has thus met with the resolute opposition of the peoples of Latin America. The facts show that all the counter-revolutionary acts of U.S. imperialism can only give rise to a new upsurge of the revolutionary struggles of the world's people. The much advertised "Nixon doctrine" of U.S. imperialism has gone bankrupt. It can be said with certainty that there is no panacea to save the U.S. aggressors from their doomed destruction.
   The people of the world, uniting together, persevering in struggle and advancing wave upon wave, will surely defeat U.S. imperialism and all its lackeys. Victory certainly belongs to the peoples of the whole world who are fighting valiantly!
   The Chinese and Vietnamese peoples are brothers and comrades-in-arms sharing weal and woe and going through thick and thin together. There exists a traditional militant friendship between our two peoples. Our friendship was formed in the long struggle against the common enemy and has been tested in violent storms; it is unbreakable. The great victories of the three peoples of Indo-China in their war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation constitute a tremendous encouragement and powerful support to the Chinese people. Following our great leader Chairman Mao's teachings, the Chinese people firmly support and assist the Vietnamese people in their war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation and firmly support and assist the three peoples of Indo-China in their war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation. The Vietnamese people are determined to fight to the end, and the Chinese people, on their part, are determined to support them to the end. This stand of ours is firm and unshakable.
   Responding with actual deeds to the militant call issued in the December 13 Statement of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the Government of the People's Republic of China, the Chinese people are now "grasping revolution, promoting production and other work and preparedness against war" and giving full play to the spirit of proletarian internationalism with the determination to make their greatest contributions in supporting and assisting the Vietnamese people and all the three peoples of Indo-China in their war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation. The fraternal peoples of Viet Nam and all the three countries of Indo-China may rest assured that no matter what tempestuous .storms may arise in the struggle ahead, the Chinese people will for ever stand on their side. Together we unite, together we fight and together we will win victory.
