The host Minister said that to the Vietnamese people, solidarity and friendship with Cuba is an order from their heart and mind. Vietnam always treasures the Cuban Party, State, and people’s extremely valuable solidarity and support for its national liberation and revolutionary path.
The Vietnamese Ministry of Justice is ready to share experience in law building, perfection, and enforcement with its Cuban peer, he noted.
At the event, the two sides agreed on concrete cooperation activities in different areas, including drafting and verifying legal documents, applying information technology to the ministries’ activities, judicial support, and personnel training.
Both Ministers agreed to order their Ministries’ relevant units to promote the implementation of the letter of intent on a technical assistance project for the Cuban Justice Ministry, signed during Minister Long’s visit to Cuba in December 2022, so that the project will contribute to legal and judicial reform in each country.
During his working visit from June 9 to 19, apart from the meetings with Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and National Assembly Vice Chairman Nguyen Khac Dinh, the Cuban Minister has sessions with leaders of the Supreme People’s Court, the Supreme People’s Procuracy, the Vietnam Bar Federation, and the People’s Committee of Hai Phong city.
This is his second trip to Vietnam, following the first in 2019. It takes place amid the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Committee for Solidarity with South Vietnam (September 25, 1963) and 50 years since then Cuban leader Fidel Castro visited Vietnam and the liberated zone in South Vietnam (September 15, 1973).
