Havana, October 5, 2013
Year of the 55th Anniversary of the Revolution

Dear compañeros:

With deep sorrow I extend to you, in the name of the Cuban Communist Party, government and people, as well as my own, heartfelt condolences upon the death of the legendary fighter for the liberation of Vietnam, Army General Vo Nguyen Giap, which I likewise extend to the sister Vietnamese people and the family members of such a close and faithful friend.

The Cuban people will always remember, with admiration and respect, the figure of General Giap, and our Revolutionary Armed Forces his invaluable contribution to Cuban military doctrine. His example as a revolutionary combatant will endure among us as an expression of the historic relations of sisterhood which link us.

Eternal glory to General Giap!
Affirming my highest respect and esteem.
