The Vietnamese leader has also emphasized the common positions of both States in international organizations and multilateral forums
President Tran Dai Quang has sent a greeting to the Cuban people and invited his peer Raul Castro to visit the nation, after welcoming today the island’s outgoing ambassador, Herminio Lopez Diaz.
The top leader said that the ties between the two countries are ‘special, exemplary’ and praised the work done by the diplomat in his four years of mission here.
Quang said that the trust between the two communist parties, states and peoples is reflected in many ways, including the exchange of visit by a high-level leader, and he recalled that he was the last president to receive the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.
I treasure that moment as a very high and unforgettable honor, he said.
The President wished success to Cuba in the process of updating its economic model and reiterated the Vietnamese authorities’ willingness to support the island in all fields and share the experiences it has accumulated in the implementation of the Doi Moi (renovation) policy.
He also emphasized the common positions of both States in international organizations and multilateral forums, especially in the framework of the United Nations and the the Non-Aligned Movement.
Cuba is always in the heart of the Vietnamese, he said.
Lopez Diaz praised President Quang’s continued contribution to the bilateral relations, one of whose expressions was the visit to the island in November 2016, and congratulated the Vietnamese Party, State and people for the 72nd anniversary of its independence on September 2.
