Speaking at the Ceremony, Mr. Tran Khanh Phoi, Deputy Director of Department of Foreign Affairs, Chairman of Quang Tri Union of Friendship Organizations briefly introduced the revolutionary life of Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

Fidel Castro whose full name is Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz was born on August 13, 1926, in Biran town, Holguin province in Eastern Cuba. Fidel Castro has been associated with the national destiny and the life of the entire Cuban people since he launched an attack on Moncada fortress on July 26, 1953 against the military government led by Batista.
After this battle, Fidel and many insurgents were arrested and put on trial by the dictator Batista government, but Fidel eloquently defended himself with a shocking statement: "History will judge me innocent". The attack on the Moncada barracks failed, but it was the first armed Cuban revolution, the seed of the Cuban revolution cultivated by Fidel himself.
On January 1, 1995, Batista had to flee abroad, the insurgents led by Fidel entered the capital, a provisional government was established. Under the leadership of the Cuban Communist Party, led by President Fidel Castro, Cuba has undergone unprecedented changes in history over the past half century.
Currently, Cuba has the leading health system in the world. The proportion of Cubans who can read and write reaches 98%. 100% of children go to school and education is completely free.
Fidel Castro has always been an influential person, a symbol of a resilient person fighting for national independence and for a prosperous and happy human life. As an outstanding revolutionary, he left an indelible impression not only in the hearts of Cuban people but people all over the world.
In the hearts of every Vietnamese, Cuba and leader Fidel Castro have become the symbols of revolutionary heroism, a spirit of rebellion and a freedom and happiness desire. Fidel Castro was the first and the only foreign head of state to visit the newly liberated area on the Quang Tri fire route. This event had a special political significance in the friendship between the two countries and resonated international public. The world was strongly impressed by the image of Fidel Castro with a large and majestic body, in an olive green uniform, wearing a cap and boots, surrounded by liberated soldiers, standing on the peak of 241 Tan Lam at Quang Tri, which was a large US base that was newly liberated by us, where the wreckage of enemy tanks, armored vehicles and cannons still remains.
Fidel Castro's visit to the liberation zone of Southern Vietnam gave Vietnamese people the solidarity and support of Cuban people. In particular, Fidel Castro’s dangerous and arduous presence on the fire land Quang Tri, Quang Binh was a great encouragement for the people and soldiers in the South, as well as Vietnamese people in the war against the US to save the country. The park named Fidel in Dong Ha city is a work of profound historical, cultural, social and human significance. The park is also to commemorate Fidel Castro as well as his affection for the Vietnamese people in general and Quang Tri people in particular, contributing to deepen the friendship between Vietnam and Cuba in the process of innovation, integration and development.
