This is Castro's first visit in his current positions since bilateral relations continued to develop significantly after Party Leader Nguyen Phu Trong's official visit to Cuba in April.
Viet Nam and Cuba established diplomatic relations in December 1960.
Currently, both sides are co-operating in many areas, especially in agriculture, telecommunications, oil and gas, tourism, infrastructure, education and training. — VNS
