HA NOI (VNS)— Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong yesterday reaffirmed the solidarity between Viet Nam's Communist Party and Cuba's Communist Party, pledging to maintain solidarity during their just cause.

He made this statement while receiving Marino Murillo Jorge, Politburo member, Vice President of the Cuban Council of Ministers and member of the Cuban Council of State, who is heading a high-ranking delegation of the Cuban Communist Party to Viet Nam.

Trong highly values this visit as an effective tool to implement the agreements between the top leaders of the two countries and a good chance to share expriences and boost co-operation between the two parties.

He said Viet Nam's renovation over the past 26 years has proved the efficacy of the Communist Party's sound policies as well as its patience and timely solutions to settle emerging difficulties.

Marino said Viet Nam's achievements in the renovation cause led by Viet Nam's Communist Party would be a valuable experience source for Cuba as it updates its economic model set by the sixth Party Congress.

Trong expressed his hope that Cuban people would gain further achievements under the leadership of the Communist Party of Cuba headed by President Raul Castro Ruz and its leader Fidel Castro.

He said that the two parties and their people would boost their bilateral relations in the coming time.

Marino also stressed his determination to strengthen the solidarity, traditional friendship and comprehensive co-operation between the two parties, countries and peoples. — VNS
