HÀ NỘI – Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng lauded the visit by Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba (CPC) Central Committee and head of the CPC Central Committee’s Department of External Relations Jose Ramon Balaguer during a reception in Hà Nội yesterday.
Trọng told his guest that reciprocal visits by high-ranking Party and State leaders and increased economic, trade and people-to-people exchange over the past few years are vivid manifestations of the exemplary fraternal ties, traditional friendship, comprehensive cooperation and loyal solidarity between the two Parties, States and peoples.
The special relationship between the two Parties and nations is an invaluable asset that is always maintained, protected, fostered and handed down to younger generations, he said.
Jose Ramon Balaguer, who is in Việt Nam for the third theoretical seminar between the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV) and CPC, expressed his belief that Việt Nam will continue reaping more successes in the implementation of resolutions adopted by the 12th National Party Congress.
Informing the host of the seminar held the same day, the Cuban guest spoke highly of the significance of the event, especially in the context that Cuba is actively embarking on the policy of updating socio-economic development model.
