HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — The leaders of Vietnam and Cuba are pledging to deepen relations between two of the world's few remaining communist countries.
President Nguyen Phu Trong and his Cuban counterpart Miguel Diaz-Canel witnessed the signing of trade and finance agreements on Friday.
Trong said at a news conference the two leaders discussed ways to deepen their countries' economic and trade ties as well as other fields. Diaz-Canel said his visit will help to strengthen cooperation between the two allies.
