HA NOI (VNS) — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung hosted a reception in Ha Noi yesterday for Cuban Minister of Finance and Prices Lina Pedraza Rodriguez during her working visit to Viet Nam.
The Vietnamese leader lauded the sound co-operation between his country and Cuba in recent years, and congratulated the Latin American nation on its enormous, comprehensive accomplishments on its path of national development.
The Vietnamese Party, State and people would exert all efforts to foster the bilateral co-operation and friendship with Cuba, he said. Much room remained for the two countries to expand their partnership, especially as Cuba pushed forward with reform and development while successfully breaking its decade-old economic embargo.
Rodriguez voiced delight at her visit's coincidence with the 55th founding anniversary of the countries' diplomatic ties, underlining the incessant growth of their amity, political trust and mutual understanding.
She thanked Viet Nam for effective co-operation and support, and noted that a five-year co-operation agreement inked between the two finance ministries during her visit would help improve their relationship. — VNS
