Speaking at the ceremony, Deputy Head of the Provincial National Assembly Delegation, Chairman of the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association of Quang Tri Province Hoang Duc Thang stressed that this is a meaningful and practical tribute to commemorate the 50th anniversary of President Fidel Castro's visit to the liberated region of South Vietnam in Quang Tri province.
50 years ago, during his visit to Vietnam from September 12 - 17, 1973, Cuban leader Fidel Castro visited Quang Binh province and the southern liberated region of Quang Tri province. This was the first and only visit of a foreign head of state to the liberated area while the battlefield in South Vietnam was still fierce, and was a great encouragement to our army and people.
The visit has become a historical milestone of the Vietnam-Cuba brotherly relationship, said the Chairman of the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association of Quang Tri Province. Since then, the special traditional relationship between Vietnam and Cuba continues to be strengthened in all fields, affirming the solidarity and strong support and assistance of the Government and People of Cuba for Vietnam in both wartime and present time.
