Mexico City (VNA) – Many Vietnamese expatriates in Mexico have expressed their sorrow at the death of Cuba’s revolutionary leader Fidel Castro Ruz, who passed away on November 25.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Mexico Le Linh Lan led a delegation of her embassy staff to pay tribute to him at the Cuban Embassy in Mexico on November 28.

Writing in the condolence book, she offered deepest sympathies on the passing away of Fidel Castro, who was a close friend of Vietnamese leaders and people.

She expressed her belief that the Cuban people will continue firmly moving forwards under the leadership of the Communist Party of Cuba while promoting the legacy of Fidel Castro.

His life and career became an immortal revolutionary symbol of peoples and progressive movements around the world, as well as those fighting for peace, national independence, freedom and equality. He was also a prime example of the internationalism among Latin American, African and Asian people, the diplomat wrote.

Vietnam and Cuba officially established the diplomatic ties on December 2, 1960. Since then, Fidel Castro continually stood side by side with the Southeast Asian nation during the struggle for national liberation and re-construction.
