The Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association launched a photo exhibition at the Vietnamese Women Museum in Hanoi on November 19 to mark the 60th anniversary of Vietnam-Cuba diplomatic relations, which first got underway on December 2, 1960.
A large number of delegates are in attendance for the photo exhibition’s opening ceremony in Hanoi.
A total of 90 images go on display for visitors to enjoy with the aim of highlighting the solidarity, friendship, co-operation, and mutual support that has historically existed between the governments and citizens of both nations.
Photos featuring the landscape and people of Cuba, along with nice memories of the Caribbean nation, have been taken by Vietnamese photographers who previously studied and worked in Cuba.
The photo exhibition showcases the close relationship and multi-faceted co-operation between the two sides.
The occasion features photos marking some of the important milestones in the bilateral co-operation relations between the two countries, along with the mutual assistance provided during difficult periods such as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic.
The exhibition is scheduled to run until November 23.
