On July 1, 2021, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken submitted his department’s ‘2020 Trafficking in Persons Report’, a document which, in common with others of the kind published by the Department, entirely lacks international or moral authority; it is a vehicle purely for false accusations and political blackmail.
Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh held phone talks with his Cuban counterpart Manuel Marrero Cruz on July 1 to discuss measures to continue enhancing the special traditional friendship and comprehensive and trustworthy cooperation between the two Parties, governments and people.
Minh Chinh affirmed that Vietnam treasures and is determined to further deepen the bilateral friendship and multifaceted cooperation between the two countries in the near future.
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.
