Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan on August 8 presented the Friendship Order to Cuban Ambassador to Vietnam Fredesman Turro Gonzalez in recognition of his contributions to consolidating and developing the Vietnam-Cuba friendship.

This is the second time Gonzalez has received such a noble reward. The first time was in 2004 when he finished his first ambassador tenure in Vietnam.

The outgoing Ambassador affirmed that in any position, he will try to fulfil his assigned tasks, contributing to enriching the time-honoured friendship and solidarity between the two nations.-VNA
