Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam believes that Cuba will overcome current socio-economic difficulties resulted from COVID-19 pandemic and embargo consequences thus successfully implementing its socio-economic model updating process and promoting the country’s great achievements in education, health care and science-technology, stated Foreign Ministry’s Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang.

Answering reporters’ queries on Vietnam’s stance on the recent disorder in Cuba, Hang said that Vietnam has learnt that the situation in Cuba has become stable again right after the disorder that was caused by protests on July 11.

She stressed that Vietnam calls on the US to end hostile policy and unilateral economic and financial embargo against Cuba. The US’s blockage and embargo measures against Cuba, which has lasted for nearly 60 years and been tightened in recent time, have worsened socio-economic difficulties facing Cuban people, said Hang.

She said that the US should take specific steps towards normalisation of relations with Cuba for the interest of people in both countries and contributing to peace, stability and development in the region and the world.

The Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson stated that Vietnam always remembers the solidarity and specious support that Cuba has given to Vietnam in hardest times. Vietnam will always stand side by side with the Cuban people and give them the best possible support, Hang added./.
