Vietnamese and Cuban leaders and officials offer flowers in remembrance of Cuban leader Fidel Castro at the Fidel Park in Central Quang Tri province’s Dong Ha city.

Hernandez is on a visit to Vietnam to attend a ceremony marking the 50th anniversary of Cuban leader Fidel Castro’s trip to the newly liberated areas in Quang Binh and Quang Tri provinces despite numerous dangers.

As the first and only foreign head of state to visit the liberated zone before the war ended, Fidel Castro’s historic visit became a symbol of faithful and fraternal solidarity between the two peoples with noble ideals for peace, national independence, democracy and progress in the world.

After the flower-offering ceremony, Vietnamese and Cuban officials planted trees at the Fidel Park, which was inaugurated in September 2018 as a symbol of the love of Vietnamese people for Fidel and the special friendship between Vietnam and Cuba.
