Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong met with Coordinator General of the Cuban Committees for the Defence of the Revolution (CDR) Carlos Rafael Miranda Martinez on Feb. 17 during his visit to Hanoi.

Martinez thanked the Vietnamese Party, State and people for the support they have offered to Cuba.
He briefed the Vietnamese Party leader on the results of the talks between the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee and the CDR earlier, as well as the recent positive changes in Cuba’s socio-economic situation.

Martinez said he appreciated the role of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) in building and maintaining the mass solidarity of the country, which can offer good lessons for his committees.

He said he hopes the relations between the two parties, the two countries and between the VFF and CDR will be enhanced.

Trong congratulated the success of the sixth Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba last April and the Party’s national conference last January. He thanked the Cuban Party and people for the support they have given to Vietnam, and confirmed the friendship between the two Parties and States, saying he will work to expand the comprehensive mutual cooperation./.
