The activity was also attended by the president of the National Assembly of People’s Power, Esteban Lazo, the Secretary of Organization of the Communist Party of Cuba, Roberto Morales, and the Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez.
Fidel Castro was the first and only world leader to travel to the south of the Asian country in the middle of the war in 1973 to reach the liberated zone and meet there with members of the Provisional Revolutionary Government and combatants of the National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam.
This marked a milestone in the special relations of friendship and solidarity between the two nations.
