Before the screening of “Don’t burn”, a short documentary on the solidarity and friendship between Cuba and Asian countries including Vietnam was presented, recalling images of President Ho Chi Minh and the fight for national independence of Vietnamese people.
Addressing the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Cuba Vu Chi Cong said that “Don’t burn” film is based on a diary written by a war doctor Dang Thuy Tram, a representative of Vietnamese youths during the war.
On the occasion, Ambassador Cong presented Alfonso Fraga, OSPAAAL General Secretary with a copy of “Diary of Dang Thuy Tram” which was published in Spanish by the Cuban Publishing House of Social Sciences.
