Speaking at the event, Mr. Nguyen Trong Nghia said that the speeches by Director of the Military History Research Centre José M. Cereijo Torres and former Cuban Ambassador to Vietnam Fredesmán Turro González have highlighted the profound significance and noble values in the revolutionary thoughts of President Ho Chi Minh and Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro.

Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) Central Committee and Head of its Ideological Department Rogelio Polanco Fuentes highlighted a need to disseminate the ideologies of leader Fidel and President Ho Chi Minh who laid the foundation for the Cuba-Vietnam relationship, a special friendship marked by exceptional, genuine, and transparent camaraderie, which is rare in international relations.
