General Giap’s 101st birthday

A year ago Raúl Castro congratulatesd General Vo Nguyen Giap on his 100th birthday

Dear friend,

Raúl congratulates General Vo Nguyen Giap on his 100th birthdayI am very honored to convey to you, on behalf of the Cuban Communist Party, government and people, as well as myself personally, our most cordial congratulations on your centenary, and to wish you excellent health and well-being.

I trust these lines will serve to reiterate our respect for your innumerable contributions to the liberation struggle of Vietnam and to the revolutionary military strategy, with which we have also been able to enrich Cuban military doctrine. To that, I add the pride which we feel in the profound relations of friendship which unite our two nations.

With my constant affection,

Raúl Castro Ruz

Havana, August 25, 2011
