NDO/ VNA – President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee (VFFCC) Tran Thanh Man congratulated Cuba on its economic achievements during a reception in Hanoi, on November 6, for deputy head of the Committee for the Defence of Revolution of Cuba (CDR) Orestes Llanes Mestre.
VFF President Man assured his guest that the Party, State and people of Vietnam are always grateful for the support that the Party, State and people of Cuba have provided for Vietnam in the fight for national liberation in the past and the construction and development at present.
He said that the long-standing ties between the two Parties, States and peoples should be maintained in order to make practical and effective contributions to each country’s revolutionary cause.
The host expressed his belief that the visit would further deepen the traditional solidarity and friendship between the two nations in the next context.
Mestre, for his part, said that although they are currently facing disasters the Party, State and people of Vietnam are always ready to assist Cuba. When Cuba suffered the devastating consequences of storm Irma, Vietnam offered 1,000 tonnes of rice in relief to the country, which demonstrates the close-knit and sincere ties that exist between the two sides.
Informing the host of the outcomes of his talks with VFFCC Vice President Truong Thi Ngoc Anh, Mestre said that the experience acquired at the talks will help the CDR to improve its operating efficiency.
During the talks held earlier, both sides expressed their delight at the achievements accomplished by the two countries, shared their working experience and agreed on collaboration principles for the near future.
