The victory led directly to the signing of the Geneva Accords, ending the war and restoring peace in Indochina.

The parade will be the highlight of several activities commemorating the anniversary of the victory. It will serve to emphasize the significance and historical importance of the Dien Bien Phu victory and the overall development of the Vietnam People’s Army.
