Hanoi (VNA) – The State-run Vietnam News Agency (VNA) launched a photo exhibition themed “Vietnam-Cuba” in Hanoi on August 10 to celebrate the 90th birthday of Cuban leader Fidel Castro (August 13).

On display are 20 coloured and black-and-white photos taken by VNA correspondents, some of which describe the visit to the central province of Quang Tri on September 15, 1973 by Fidel, who was then First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba and Prime Minister.

Contemplating the leader’s photographs that marked historic milestones in Vietnam-Cuban friendship and cooperation, Charge d’affaires a.i of the Cuban embassy Liurka Rodriguez Barrios described them as evidence of the solidarity, friendship and cooperation between the two countries over the past 50 years.

VNA Deputy General Director Le Duy Truyen, Chairman of the VNA chapter of the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association, hailed the ever-growing ties between Vietnam and Cuba over the past years.

Thanks to effective cooperation with Cuban partners, the VNA has made practical contributions to fostering bilateral ties, he said.-VNA
