President at pagoda opening
President Tröông Taán Sang attended Phaät Tích Truùc Laâm Baûn Gioác Pagoda's inauguration in the northern border province of Cao Baèng's Ñaàm Thuûy Commune.
Sang also attended a number of ceremonies during his visit to the province for the Vieät Nam People's Army's 70th anniversary and the 25th All People's Defence Day. President Hoà Chí Minh founded the Vieät Nam People's Army in Cao Baèng on December 22 70 years ago.
Construction on the traditional Vietnamese pagoda overlooking Baûn Gioác Waterfall started in June 2013. Individuals and organisations donated the VNÑ18 billion (US$857,000) required to build it.
