Hanoi (VNA) – National Assembly Vice Chairman Do Ba Ty has expressed his belief that under the leadership of the Communist Party of Cuba, the Caribbean country will continue to firmly stand on its chosen road.

During a reception in Hanoi on November 6 for deputy head of the Committee of the Defence of Revolution of Cuba (CDR) Orestes Llanes Mestre, Ty was updated about Cuba’s economic development models in education and health care.

He affirmed that the Vietnamese people always bear in mind material and spiritual support that the Party, State and people of Cuba provided for the country in the past national liberation.

Over the past nearly six decades, solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two nations have kept growing via the regular exchange of all-level delegations via the State, Party, National Assembly channels and between the two countries’ ministries, agencies and localities.

Ty wished that the two nations would offer mutual support at multilateral forums for the benefit of each country as well as for peace, stability and development in the region and the world.

The host suggested continuing to step up joint projects, especially in agriculture, medical products and services.

Conveying his sympathy for the Vietnamese people over serious losses caused by the recent flood, Mestre affirmed that the Party, State and people are ready to do its best to assist Vietnam.

He said the two countries hold huge potential of cooperation so that they need to enhance information sharing and boost links across bio-chemicals, sports, culture, national defence-security.

Meeting the Cuban guest, head of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee’s Commission for Mass Mobilisation Truong Thi Mai said the signing of Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation between the CDR and the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee will contribute to nurturing ties between the two nations.

Mestre also vowed to intensify Vietnam-Cuba special solidarity.-VNA
