President Ho Chi Minh.

A book on late President Ho Chi Minh has been published in the Spanish language in Cuba to celebrate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Cuba and Vietnam.

The book entitled “Memories of Uncle Ho”, written by Senior Lieutenant-General Phung The Tai, was published by the Jose Marti Publishing House.

Speaking at the ceremony to present the book, in Havana on September 7, Cuban reporter Marta Roja highlighted the milestones in President Ho’s life and work.

Roja, the last foreign reporter to interview President Ho before he passed away, said that President Ho was a pioneer during the struggle for freedom by colonised countries in Asia and Africa and the founder of the Vietnamese Democratic Republic, now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. He was well-known for his statement “Nothing is more precious than independence and freedom”. He was the person who led the revolution to liberate the Vietnamese people and ensured their victory over foreign aggressors.

The 2,000 copies of the book that the Jose Marti Publishing House have printed will help young Latin American people, particularly avid Cuban readers to better understand President Ho Chi Minh.
