The Accords paved the way for Vietnam’s great victory in Spring 1975 that completely liberated the country. The agreement was the outcome of a combination of political, military and diplomatic fronts. "The agreement represented a major success of Vietnam in many different areas. It was signed during a time of many complicated developments worldwide which presented Vietnam with both advantages and difficulties. The signing of the deal reflected the wise leadership of the Politburo," said Former Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Manh Cam at an event to mark the 46th anniversary of the agreement in Hanoi on Friday.

The Paris Peace Accord 1973 also marked an important milestone in the history  of international relations as it contributed to the liberation of both Laos and Cambodia. It opened a new chapter for Southeast Asia as the US agreed to withdraw from Indochina and Southeast Asia at large, leading to the establishment of regional peace and stability.
