Cuba President Visits Cu Chi Tunnels on Last Day in Vietnam

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam – Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel visited on Saturday the Cu Chi tunnels which were used by Communist guerrillas during the Vietnam War against the United States, on the last day of his official trip to South Asian Nation.

Diaz-Canel flew in from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City to visit the tunnels, which are now a tourist attraction.

The president wrote in the guest book that the Cu Chi tunnels were an example of “the talent, intelligence, tenacity, perseverance, cunning and bravery of the heroic people of Vietnam.”

The nearly 200 kilometers (124 miles) of the underground network of tunnels sheltered some 15,000 Communist guerrillas during the Vietnam War.

Before leaving for Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, Diaz-Canel met with employees of his country’s embassy in Hanoi, and with Cuban students in the country, according to a tweet by the Cuban foreign ministry.

The visiting president was scheduled to attend a dinner hosted by the local authorities before leaving for Laos, where he will conclude his tour of Asia.

On Friday, Diaz-Canel met with his Vietnamese counterpart, Nguyen Phu Trong, and signed a new treaty to remove trade barriers and push commercial exchange from $224.3 million recorded in 2017 to $500 million by 2022.

Vietnam is Cuba’s second-largest Asian trading partner after China.
