Buenos Aires (VNA) – The Vietnamese and Cuban Embassies in Argentina held an exchange programme in Buenos Aires on May 12, aiming to help enhance the friendship and close-knit ties between the two nations.

Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador Dang Xuan Dung affirmed the support of the Party, Government and people of Vietnam for Cuba’s revolution and socio-economic model update, expressing his hope that Cuba will overcome all difficulties to succeed in socialism building.

He thanked the Cuban Party, Government and people for their valuable support, solidarity and fraternity with Vietnam during the country’s past struggle for national independence as well as its present Doi Moi (Reform) cause and national construction.

Vietnamese people also keep in mind Cuban leader Fidel Castro’s statement that “For Vietnam, Cuba is willing to shed its blood,” the diplomat stressed.
