    Background: North Vietnamese leaders and representatives of Communist countries paid tribute to Dr. Salvador Allende, the late deposed president of Chile, at a memorial service in hanoi, the North Vietnamese capital recently.

    Ambassadors and personal representatives of The People's Republic of China, the Soviet Union, and the communist-aligned nations of Eastern Europe attended the service at the memorial hall in central Hanoi.

    The ceremony began with the arrival of the host North Vietnamese delegation, led by President Ton Duc Thang. With him were the First Secretary of the Vietnam Labour Party, Le Duan, Prime Minister Pham Van Dong, the National Assembly Chairman Truong Chinh, and the military leader, General Vo Nguyen Giap.

    The hosts and delegates signed a condolence book and stood for a moment's meditation. A military band then struck up.

    After the ceremony, North Vietnamese delegates delivered speeches criticising Chile's new military regime, and accusing the United States of intervention in Chile's internal affairs.

    The day was declared a national day of mourning, and all entertainments were stopped.

    SYNOPSIS: The streets of Hanoi, the North Vietnamese capital, were hushed on a national day of mourning for Doctor Salvador Allende, the late deposed President of Chile. At the memorial hall in central Hanoi, national leaders and representatives of communist countries gathered for a service in honour of Dr. Allende. Wreaths were laid by representatives of the People's Republic of China, the Soviet Union, and communist-aligned nations of Eastern Europe. The Chilean President died in the Presidential Palace in Santiago during the military coup of September the eleventh.

    The delegates stood in silence in a solemn tribute to Chile's first freely-elected marxist President. They later signed a book of condolences.

    The North Vietnamese delegation was led by President Ton Duc Thang. With him were the Prime Minister, Pham Van Dong, the First Secretary of the Vietnam Labour Party, Le Duan, the National Assembly chairman, Truong Chinh, and the military leader, General Vo Nguyen Giap.

    After signing the book of condolences, the North Vietnamese leaders delivered speeches criticising Chile's new military regime, and accusing the United States of Intervention in Chile's Internal affairs.
