Viet Minh sign accord with nationalist opponents
23 October 1945. Under Chinese pressure to allow a greater non-communist presence in his government, Ho Chi Minh signs an accord between the Viet Minh and Vietnamese Revolutionary Alliance (Dong Minh Hoi). In the next two months, three more accords are made with the DMH or Vietnam Nationalist Party (VNQDD), that on 23 December with both parties being the most important. These accords break down after the nationalists launch recruitment drives and both sides vilify each other in the press and their own propaganda.
