A total of 500 artists nationwide joined in an artistic performance to celebrate 60 years of the historical victory of Dien Bien Phu battle held in the northwestern province of Dien Bien Wednesday. 
The performance, featuring folk songs and dances from Vietnam's ethnic minority groups, ended a grand ceremony held in the morning of May 7 to mark the 60th anniversary of the battle, which ended French colonial rule in the country.
The battle occurred in Dien Bien between March and May 1954 under the command of General Vo Nguyen Giap. The victory led to the signing of the 1954 Geneva Accord in which France agreed to withdraw its forces from its colonies in Indochina.
