HÀ NỘI — Deputy Prime Minister Trương Hòa Bình hosted a reception in Hà Nội on Monday for President of the People’s Supreme Court of Cuba Rubén Remigio Ferro, who is on a working visit to Việt Nam.
Bình said the relationship between the two nations is special, profound and faithful, and that they have been continually tightened.
The Communist Party of Việt Nam and the Vietnamese people always keep in mind the support of the Communist Party of Cuba and the Cuban people throughout history, he said.
The Deputy PM added that Việt Nam supported the Caribbean nation in its just struggle and firmly believed updating Cuba’s socio-economic model would open up a new stage in its development for the sake of the Cuban people.
Ferro said relations with the Vietnamese Party and people were of utmost importance to Cuba.
He said Cuba had just issued a new constitution. Its judicial sector was gaining useful experience from Việt Nam, and it hoped to receive more assistance from Vietnamese experts in the time ahead, he added.
Bình expressed his hope that constitutional changes in Cuba would help the country meet its goals in the path to socialism, promote foreign investment, change the economic structure and modernise society.
Leaders of the Vietnamese Party and State support co-operation between the two court systems, on which a memorandum of understanding was signed in September 2013, he said, noting that the expansion of this partnership to local courts had helped strengthen overall relations and meet the Vietnamese and Cuban provincial-level courts’ demand for judicial and legal information sharing.
Việt Nam was ready to share its experience – both successes and failures – in this field with Cuba to help the latter quickly meet its reform targets, the Deputy PM said. — VNS
