During his stay in the Caribbean country, Party leader Trọng held talks with President Raul Castro Ruz, visited Cuban revolution leader Fiden Castro Ruz, met with President of the National Assembly of People’s Power of Cuba Ricardo Alarcon de Quesada among other activities.

In the talks with President Raul Castro Ruz, the two leaders informed each other about recent developments in each country and exchanged views on bilateral relations and international issues.

They both expressed their pleasure at the fine development in the bilateral ties and agreed to further consolidate political ties, enhance experience exchanges and diversify the two countries’ cooperation.

President of the Cuban Council of Ministers Raul Castro Ruz highly valued Party leader Trọng’s visit to Cuba and congratulated on significant achievements attained by Việt Nam in its national construction and deveopment cause.

He said he believes that under the Vietnamese Party’s leadership, Vietnamese people would successfully realize the Resolution adopted at the 11th National Party Congress early last year.

Party leader Trọng stressed that Việt Nam always keeps in mind and appreciate Cuba’s valuable support and assistance given to their national liberation and reunification in the past, as well as during the current period of national construction and defence.

The Vietnamese leader affirmed that Việt Nam always attaches importance to consolidating and enhancing the fraternal, friendly, confidential, and comprehensive ties with Cuba.

Both sides agreed to boost exchanges of delegations, as well as experiences, particularly in the field of socio-economic management.

The two leaders agreed on strengthening efforts to expand economic, trade and investment cooperation in accordance with the two countries’ potentials.

They also agreed to create more favorable conditions for businesses and localities of the two sides to beef up investment and cooperation to make the most of their strengths and potential.

Regarding regional and international issues, the host and the guest stressed that the recent positive developments of Latin American left-wing movements have made it easier for revolutionary forces in their struggle for peace, national independence, democracy and social progress.

The ongoing financial crises, economic downturns and social instability in several countries as well as more complex global issues such as poverty, disease outbreak, climate change and damage to the environment make it necessary for socialist values to lead the way to achieve sustainable development for people, they said.

They both confirmed the need to step up cooperation and mutual support at international forums that both countries are members of, especially the United Nations.

In today’s world, the special relationship between the Vietnamese and Cuban peoples has become a symbol of the era and is an invaluable asset that needs to be protected, preserved and handed down to the future generations.
