VUFO activists challenge accusation that Cuba sponsors terrorism

Hanoi, Jan 20 (Prensa Latina) Two important friendship and solidarity organizations in Vietnam on Wednesday rejected the outgoing US government’s decision to include Cuba in the list of state sponsors of terrorism.

What Cuba does do, as a diaphanous prove of international solidarity, is to actively contribute to peace, friendship and cooperation, according to the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organization (VUFO) and the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association (AAVC) in letter to the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP).

As an example, they cited the Henry Reeve International Medical Contingent Specialized in Disaster Situations and Serious Epidemics, whose members have saved lives or helped millions of people around the globe for last 15 years.

Cuba’s inclusion in the list of state sponsors of terrorism is irrational and unjustified, Nguyen Phuong Nga, VUFO’s president and Nguyen Viet Thao, AAVC’s permanent vice president stated.

We trust and decisively support the noble and just revolutionary cause of the Cuban people in constructing and developing an independent, sovereign, socialist, democratic, prosperous and sustainable nation.
