Assoc. Prof. Dr Nguyen Viet Thao, Permanent Vice President of the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association, on June 23 highlighted the solidarity, special friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries, affirming Vietnamese people always stand side by side with Cuba.
Vietnam on June 23 voted in favour of a United Nations (UN) resolution calling for an end to the decades-long economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the US against Cuba, and urged the US to reverse the current Cuba policies for the interest of both peoples and for peace, stability and development in the region and the world over.
The resolution was adopted by the UN General Assembly at a meeting the same day with 184 votes in favour, 2 against, and 3 abstentions.
The Party, the State, the Government and the people of Vietnam condemn the blockade against Cuba and stand in solidarity with the Cuban people in the face of the difficulties that this policy generates, assured in Hanoi the president of the Vietnamese Fatherland Front, Doan Van Chien.
In a world tending to cooperation, unilateral measures such as the blockade are unjust and cause difficulties for the peoples, said the Vietnamese leader upon receiving the island's new ambassador, Orlando Hernández Guillén.
