Phuong Nga reaffirmed the position of the VUFO during a meeting with the Cuban ambassador, Orlando Hernandez, whom she visited to deliver a donation of one thousand euros from said organization to help compensate for the damage caused by the devastating fire that broke out weeks ago in the supertanker base in the province of Matanzas.
Nga conveyed her condolences to the relatives of the victims and expressed her grief for the material and human damage caused by the incident.
She also announced that they are preparing a call so that citizens can contribute in the effort to provide aid to Cuba. The Vietnamese people, she stressed, will be side by side supporting their Cuban brethren in the face of any adversity.
Hernandez thanked the expressions of solidarity and affection received these days by authorities of Vietnam’s Communist Party, the Government, the National Assembly and different organizations.
He also updated the visitor on the recovery work being carried out in the industrial zone of Matanzas, and on the impact caused by the fire.
Hernandez said he was moved by the rapid mobilization and the willingness of the Vietnamese people to come, once again, to the aid of the Cuban people.
