At the reception, PM Phuc praised the effective cooperation between the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) and Cuba’s Prensa Latina and their contributions to the two countries’ national development. He urged the two agencies to further strengthen cooperation.
The PM noted that VNA and PL have had effective professional cooperation contributing to the past struggles for independence and the current national development in their respective nations.
He suggested both sides intensify IT application in their professional activities and work harder to deserve the trust of the Vietnamese and Cuban Party, State and peoples.
They should continue existing cooperation activities and discuss ways to meet the growing demand for news reporting, especially news on their countries’ situation for Cuban and Vietnamese media in a timely, correct and objective manner.
Mr. Acosta said his nation treasures the increased cooperation between the two news agencies on a par with bilateral political and diplomatic ties and the close-knit friendship between the two nations.
He thanked the Vietnamese Government and VNA’s assistance to his agency’s activities, assuring PL will objectively and fully update news about the situation and development of Vietnam.
The Cuban people consider every attainment of Vietnam as their own, Acosta said, expressing his belief that the Southeast Asian nation will continue to reap more achievements and promote its international profile.
Also that day, the General Director of the Vietnam News Agency Nguyen Duc Loi and the President of Cuba’s news agency Prensa Latina held talks on measures to step up bilateral cooperation in the time ahead.
