Speaking at the event, Chairwoman of the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association of HCM City Truong Thi Hien said the victory was of significance to the fraternal Cuban people, marking the US's military defeat in its invasion into Cuba, helping to bring its revolution to the final triumph and lead the country forward to the path to socialism.
She said Vietnam has consistently supported Cuba's socio-economic reform, adding that bilateral ties are expanding into agriculture, industry, oil and gas, construction, culture, education, science-technology and health care.
