"The Communist Party of Cuba constitutes the leading nucleus of the revolution and the construction of socialism. In recent years it has led the Cuban people to achieve important economic development results, in the improvement of living conditions and the effective confrontation of covid-19. In this regard, we are very pleased", reads the text of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.

We reaffirm our commitment to work with the Cuban side to further promote the traditional friendship between China and Cuba, strengthen political trust, deepen strategic communication and constantly enrich mutually beneficial and fruitful cooperation to jointly achieve new achievements in the construction of socialism in both countries".

That the great meeting in Havana will be the Congress of the historical continuity of the Cuban Revolution, of the eternal spirit of the Sierra Maestra, of the Bay of Pigs and of Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro, is highlighted in the missive of the highest leadership body of the Communist Party of Vietnam (PCV).

"The special relationship between Vietnam and Cuba, in which the exchange between the two parties is the political basis and plays an important guiding role in boosting bilateral ties, has been built by the leaders of our revolutions, such as José Martí, Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro and different generations of leaders of Vietnam and Cuba. That special relationship continues to be constantly cultivated and developed in all aspects with great achievements, thus showing the sentiment, firm and faithful revolutionary stance of the parties, states and peoples of both countries, contributing to the revolutionary causes and socialist construction works in each nation. The imperishable words of the Commander in Chief, Fidel Castro, "For Vietnam, we are ready to give even our own blood", will forever be the noble symbol of this sacred relationship", emphasizes the PCV.

In agreement with this thought, the Workers' Party of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea expressed its certainty that this 8th Congress will be an important moment to resolutely defend the revolutionary conquests, firmly guarantee the continuity and invariability of the socialist cause, and achieve the prosperous development of the country, as well as the welfare of the people.

"The relations between the parties and countries of Korea and Cuba were established in the common struggle against imperialism and for the successful development of the socialist cause, were tested in the complicated and difficult international situations and today are developing comprehensively following the need of a new era," the Workers' Party's greeting emphasizes and supports the traditional relations of friendship, unity, and cooperation between the two organizations.

The Lao People's Revolutionary Party also praises the importance of the Cuban conclave, which "will demonstrate society's constant development and the strengthening of the Cuban communists. We are confident that the resolutions adopted at the Congress will serve as guidelines and solid foundations for the welfare of the Cuban people," the congratulation states.
