HA NOI (VNS)— Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong said yesterday that Viet Nam and Cuba should put bilateral co-operation on a more practical and effective footing.

This would bring economic, trade and investment links between the two countries on par with the strong political ties that they enjoy, Trong said at a meeting with newly appointed Cuban Ambassador Herminio Lopez Diaz in Ha Noi.

Expressing his happiness at the ever-strengthening solidarity, friendship and comprehensive co-operation between the two countries, he hoped the Cuban envoy would contribute to consolidating the ties.

Despite the geographical distance between them, Viet Nam and Cuba have always supported each other in their struggles for national independence and development, Trong said.

He said it was Viet Nam's consistent policy to back the Cuban people's revolutionary cause and stand side by side with them in the fight for noble objectives including the ideals of socialism.

The Party leader congratulated Cuba on its achievements in applying an "updated" socio-economic development model and also expressed his delight at the increases in the two countries' solidarity, friendship and comprehensive cooperation.

Ambassador Diaz pledged that he would do his utmost to consolidate and strengthen Viet Nam-Cuba relations during his tenure. — VNS
