Cu Chi Tunnels is a wonder of Vietnam’s unique military art, expressing the resilient and indomitable will of the people of the “land of steel,” one of the symbols of revolutionary heroism.

After being introduced to Cu Chi steel soil and the tunnel project with a total length of nearly 250km, Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero Cruz said:

The Vietnamese people were not prepared to confront modern American means. But the wisdom of the Vietnamese people ensured the final victory. Although the US has dropped bombs and chemicals to destroy everything that exists on the ground, but our Vietnamese brothers have written a heroic history for all mankind. There is no architect in the world who can design a unique tunnel system like the Cu Chi tunnels. The Vietnamese people have created a very unique tunnel work and created many weapons from rudimentary tools. In the hearts of Cu Chi guerrillas, there is an absolute belief that the footprints of American soldiers cannot trample this land.

At the end of the visit, the Cuban Prime Minister wrote in the scrapbook in Cu Chi:

“Thank you Vietnam. A people who are ready to stand up to fight for the Fatherland. After many difficulties, despite being completely destroyed by enemy bombs on the ground, the Vietnamese people fought underground. fight with patriotism, establish feats and go to victory. Long live Vietnam”.
