The gift, which has arrived at the Port of Mariel in the western province of Artemisa, was announced during a visit to the Caribbean nation by General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee Nguyen Phu Trong last March.

Attending the ceremony were General Director of the General Department of State Reserves of Vietnam Do Viet Duc, Vietnamese Ambassador to Cuba Nguyen Trung Thanh and Cuban Deputy Minister of Foreign Trade and Investment Antonio Carricarte, among others.

Duc said he was happy to visit Cuba amid the 45th anniversary of its leader Fidel Castro’s visit to Vietnam – a milestone in Cuba’s precious material and spiritual support to the Southeast Asian nation.
