Bac Ninh (VNA) – The Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association on August 10 organised an exchange programme in the northern province of Bac Ninh to mark the 64th anniversary of the attack on Moncada Barracks (July 26) that culminated in the victory of Cuban armed forces against the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista.

Addressing the event, Vice Chairman of the Bac Ninh province People’s Committee Nguyen Van Phong highlighted the close, faithful and pure relationship between Vietnam and Cuba which has been cultivated by President Ho Chi Minh and President Fidel Castro, and fostered by generations of leaders and people of the two countries.

He briefed the participants on outstanding achievements Bac Ninh has recorded over the past time, saying he believes that the bilateral time-honoured relationship will always be preserved and strengthened, and that Cuba will win more victories in national construction and defence.

Cuban Ambassador to Vietnam Herminio Lopez Diaz said Cuba is willing to cooperate with and support Vietnam in general and Bac Ninh in particular in bilateral activities, for mutual development. -VNA
