HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- Unforgettable Memories is the title of an article by former Cuban president Fidel Castro, recalling his visit to Vietnam 40 years ago. The article was published on Saturday by Granma newspaper.

Castro said that he did not have the privilege of meeting Ho Chi Minh, the North Vietnamese leader.

He noted that thousands of Vietnamese youths studied Spanish and English in Cuba for years, while a large number of Cubans learned Vietnamese in the Asian country.

Haiphong harbour, bombed by US planes, welcomed Cuban boats loaded with sugar, while hundreds of technicians worked during the Vietnam War in the construction field.

At present, bilateral economic collaboration and political relations between the two Communist Parties are excellent and even keep growing, Fidel noted.

In his article, Castro also referred to the US threats on Syria and that the risk of such conflict has diminished thanks to the Russian initiative.
