Website Cubadebate cited his posts on his Twitter account as saying that he appreciated his meetings with Vietnam’s high-ranking leaders and affirmed both sides’ commitments to raise the level of economic relations to the level of political ties.

“Much to learn from our Vietnamese brothers, winners of wars, embargos and consequences of underdevelopment, with exemplary work, creativity and discipline,” Miguel Diaz-Canel wrote on Twitter.

Vietnam is the fifth leg of the Cuba leader’s tour to European and Asian nations. Earlier, he stopped over in France and paid official visits to Russia, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and China. Laos will be the last leg of this tour.
