Quang Tri (VNA) -
A ceremony was held in the Fidel Castro Park in the central province of Quang Tri on August 13 to pay tribute to the Cuban leader on the occasion of his 95th birth anniversary (August 13, 1926-2021).
During the ceremony, participants expressed their warm sentiment and respect for the Cuban leader, who had made great contributions to the revolutionary movements of the world, and the success of the national liberalisation and development of both Cuba and Vietnam.

Fidel was the first and the only foreign leader to visit the newly-liberated area in the south of Vietnam during the anti-US resistance war.
He also took the initiative in the international movement to support Vietnam’s struggle for national independence and reunification, along with its process of national development and defence.
The park named after him in Quang Tri was inaugurated in 2018 on the occasion of the 45 years since the Cuban leader’s visit to the liberated region in southern Vietnam (now in Quang Tri province) in 1973./.
