The success of the Cuban Revolution on January 1, 1959, which put an end to the Batista dictatorial regime and the 500 years of the colonial rule in Cuba, was one of the most influential political events in Latin America in the 20th century.

Vietnam and Cuba established diplomatic ties on December 2, 1960. Cuba was the first nation to form a Committee for Solidarity with South Vietnam, the first country in Latin America to have established diplomatic ties with Vietnam, and also the first in the Western hemisphere to receive Vietnamese students.
For reasons of time difference, but also because of close feelings, Vietnam was one of the first countries to congratulate Cuba on the 62nd anniversary of the triumph of the Revolution on January 1, 1959, reported Prensa Latina.
This year the two nations celebrated the 60th anniversary of their diplomatic relations (December 2), a circumstance recalled by messages from Vietnamese leaders to their Cuban counterparts.
In the preceding months, multiple political, cultural and social activities were held in both countries in salute to that inaugural act of an era of brotherhood and solidarity that constitutes a paradigm in international relations.
On December 30, 2020, Vietnam and Cuba agreed to elevate these links to higher stages by carrying out virtually, and with Havana as the rotating venue, the 38th meeting of the Vietnam-Cuba Inter-Governmental Committee.
The next meeting of the Vietnam-Cuba Inter-Governmental Committee is scheduled for 2021 in Vietnam./.
