A pictorial book entitled “Fidel Castro – Quang Tri mot ngay lich su 1973” (Fidel Castro - Quang Tri on a historic day in 1973) has been published to celebrate the 40th anniversary of former Cuban President Fidel Castro’s visit to Vietnam’s central Quang Tri province.

The book includes 150 photos featuring activities of President Fidel Castro, who was accompanied by Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Van Dong, on his visit to the liberated zone in the province in September, 1973.

Each photo captures Fidel Castro’s feelings when he was in such places as Hien Luong bridge, Tan Lam base and Dong Ha township, which were battered by the US troops during the American war.

These photos were taken by journalist and photographer Sy So, who has more than 40 years of covering important events in the Hien Luong demarcation line and the Quang Tri demilitarised zone.

Published by the Thuan Hoa Publishing House, the 75-page publication has photo captions in Vietnamese and English.-VNA
