HÀ NỘI — Senior Party officials of Việt Nam and Cuba have agreed that amid the COVID-19 pandemic, regular meetings and exchanges between the two Parties and countries vividly demonstrate their special friendship.
Võ Văn Thưởng, Politburo member and permanent member of the Secretariat of the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV) Central Committee held online talks with Roberto Morales Ojeda, Politburo member and permanent member of the Secretariat of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) Central Committee on Thursday.
At the talks, Thưởng informed the Cuban official about Việt Nam’s achievements in the COVID-19 fight and socio-economic development, as well as the country’s efforts in implementing the Resolution adopted at the 13th National Party Congress, especially in Party building and rectification, and the combat against corruption and other negative phenomena.
He also spoke of the important contents approved at the recent fifth plenum of the CPV Central Committee.
Such achievements reflect the solidarity and high consensus within the Party, the entire people and army, helping to raise public confidence in the Party’s leadership, Thưởng noted.
For his part, Morales Ojeda congratulated Việt Nam on the achievements, and expressed his belief that under the leadership of the CPV, Vietnamese people will successfully achieve targets set at the 13th National Party Congress.
He briefed Thưởng on Cuba’s strategies and policies in various aspects, along with priorities in updating its socio-economic development models in the future.
The Cuban official emphasised the significance of high-level visits by leaders of the two countries in recent years, including the State-level visit to Cuba by Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng in March 2018, the visit to Việt Nam by First Secretary of the PCC Central Committee and President of Cuba Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermudez in November the same year, and the official visit to Cuba by President Nguyễn Xuân Phúc last September.
The two sides discussed orientations and measures to further implement cooperation agreements in different spheres like healthcare, agriculture, fishery, bio-technology and renewable energy, as well as specific projects.
Thưởng reaffirmed the consistent policy of the Vietnamese Party, State and people that is supporting the just revolutionary cause of Cuba, and noted his belief that under the leadership of the PCC, Cuban people will successfully update their socio-economic model, opening up a new development period.
