Díaz-Canel, who is also first Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, affirmed that Cuba attaches great importance to vaccine cooperation with Vietnam.

Cuba is making efforts to soon supply COVID-19 vaccines and is ready to send its experts to transfer vaccine production technology to Vietnam, he told Phuc.

Díaz-Canel once again thanked the Party, State and people of Vietnam for donating rice to help Cuba overcome difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which he said demonstrates the noble gesture and tradition of the special relations between the two countries.

He affirmed that the Cuban Party and Government will actively direct relevant ministries and branches to continue implementing measures to further consolidate and develop the fraternal solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries.

For his part, President Phuc highly appreciated Cuba’s experience in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the results of discussions between the two sides in supplying and transferring Cuba’s Abdala vaccine production technology to Vietnam, noting such effective cooperation will vividly demonstrate the special solidarity between the two countries in the current situation.

 

He proposed that leaders of the two countries continue to direct ministries and sectors to overcome difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and implement measures to strengthen and develop cooperation in all fields, including effectively implementing cooperation mechanisms and Cuban food production programmes, in order to maintain bilateral trade and investment relations.

Both presidents reiterated the two countries’ unshakable solidarity and the spirit of mutual assistance in any circumstances, and agreed to strengthen cooperation and exchange of experiences in the process of building socialism in their countries.

They expressed pleasure at the positive development of the relationship between Vietnam and Cuba despite the COVID-19 pandemic, saying the two sides have regularly maintained political dialogue at the highest level, including important phone calls between Vietnamese Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong and first Secretary Miguel Díaz-Canel and on May 5 and July 27.

The two leaders agreed that Vietnam and Cuba will continue to maintain close coordination and mutual support at international organizations and multilateral forums.

President Phuc reiterated Vietnam’s consistent stance of strongly supporting resolutions adopted by the United Nations General Assembly to call for an end to the blockade and embargo against Cuba.
