The Vietnamese Ambassador to Cuba, Vu Chi Cong, on July 20, presented a Spanish-language book entitled “Ho Chi Minh collection” to the Jose Marti National Library of Cuba to mark the 50 th anniversary of the diplomatic ties between the two countries.

Speaking at the event, Cong highlighted Ho Chi Minh’s revolutionary life, his patriotism and international spirit, adding that the Vietnamese Party and people are making an effort to learn and follow his moral examples to build a more prosperous country as he desired.

He also conveyed his thanks to the Party, State and people of Cuba for their support to Vietnam in its struggle for national independence and reunification in the past as well as national construction and defence at present.

In response, Deputy General Director of library Nancy Machando thanked the Vietnamese Party and people for the precious gift, saying that it will help to enrich the library’s documentation on the thought, career and life of President Ho Chi Minh.

Books on President Ho Chi Minh and issues of the Vietnam Pictorial were also given to library’s branches in 14 cities and provinces across Cuba./.
