The State leader noted that during his four years working in Vietnam, the ambassador has been a trusted bridge between the leaders of the two Parties and States, as well as a close friend and an effective partner to Vietnam’s ministries, sectors, socio-political organisations and localities.

He spoke highly of the constantly growing brotherly solidarity, comprehensive cooperation and mutual trust between the Parties, States and peoples of Vietnam and Cuba over the past few years, manifested through the regular mutual visits made by the two nations’ senior leaders, particularly through the sentiments of the Vietnamese Party, State and people offered to Cuba as their great leader Fidel Castro passed away last year.

The bilateral cooperation mechanisms have been regularly implemented with practical contents across many channels, while the multilateral cooperation between the two countries has also been strengthened, with both sides coordinating and supporting each other at international organisations and multilateral forums, particularly the United Nations and the Non-Aligned Movement, President Quang stated.

He recalled his fine impressions of Cuba during his visits there, affirming that the Vietnamese leaders and people will forever hold in their memory the huge contributions of the great leader Fidel Castro to the special and exemplary relations that exist between Vietnam and Cuba.

The President congratulated the Cuban Government and people on their significant achievements attained over the past few years, especially in the process of “updating the economic model”, whilst affirming Vietnam’s willingness to continue sharing with Cuba its experience and success drawn from its Doi Moi (Renewal) process over the past 30 years.

On the occasion, he asked the ambassador to extend his most sincere greetings and wishes for good health to Cuban President Raul Castro and the other leaders of the Cuban Party and State.

For his part, Ambassador Herminio López Diaz expressed his sincere gratitude to the President for his fine sentiments towards Cuba, whilst conveying the congratulations from the Cuban State leader to President Tran Dai Quang on the occasion of Vietnam’s 72nd National Day.

He emphasised that President Quang’s visit to Cuba in late 2016 has opened up a new chapter in the traditional friendly relations between the two countries.

The Cuban State and people will always do their utmost to develop the friendly Vietnam-Cuban ties, the diplomat said, adding that the Cuban Embassy in Vietnam will always stand by the Cuban State in order to develop and enhance the fine relations between the two nations.

He affirmed that in any position, he will continue to make contributions to further strengthen the traditional solidarity and friendship between the two countries.
