Cabello, for his part, said he is moved at visiting Vietnam on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh’s Testament and the 50th death anniversary of the President.
He expressed wishes to step up traditional friendship with Vietnam to share experience, particularly in Party building, socio-economic development, agricultural production and poverty reduction.
