Hanoi welcomes the planning of activities to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Vietnam-Cuba diplomatic ties in Hanoi in 2020, Chairman of Hanoi municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung has said.
The Hanoi leader made the statement at the reception for Cuban Ambassador to Vietnam Lianys Torres Rivera on February 13.
Some prominent activities are the Cuban Cultural Days held at King Ly Thai To Statue Square in Hoan Kiem district and the construction of a mosaic picture on Yen Phu ceramic street to promote the Vietnam-Cuba relationship.
Chairman Chung affirmed that the city authorities are willing to support celebrations of the diplomatic ties and proposed the organisation of a photo exhibition showcasing images on the bilateral relations between Vietnam and Cuba.
The Cuban Ambassador said that Hanoi will be the primary location to hold activities in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Vietnam-Cuba diplomatic ties (December 2, 1960-2020).
She noted that the mosaic picture, which is the proposal of the Cuban side, is expected to be inaugurated in late 2020 in the presence of senior Cuban and Hanoi officials.
