Lieutenant General Victor Rojo Ramos said that the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Cuba were established with the main task of defending national sovereignty and preparing for defensive combat.
Over the past six decades, the special friendship between Cuba and Vietnam has been continuously consolidated and comprehensively developed in all fields, a symbol of the solidarity between the two countries.
Although the Covid-19 pandemic has caused a lot of negative effects, the period 2020-2022 has a very important meaning in the bilateral relationship between Cuba and Vietnam.

In a show of good faith and understanding, Lieutenant General Trinh Van Quyet recounted the history of Cuban bravery. 66 years ago, the ship Granma carrying 82 elite children of Cuba led by leader Fidel Castro landed on Cuban beaches, intent on revolution. This is important event continued the path that founded by Jose Marti, Cuba's first freedom fighter. Ultimately, Fidel's comrades kicked out the colonial masters, ending five centuries of colonialism while gaining independence and freedom for the country.
The Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces were born in that glorious history. They have spent the previous 66 years fighting, building, and growing, facing multiple challenges. These organizations have always successfully completed the tasks assigned by the Party, State, and people. They have firmly defended their regime, independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity. That has made an important contribution to the development of socialism in Cuba.
