Vietnam Denies Training Cubans

Sat., March 9, 1996, midnight

Vietnam denied on Friday that it trains Cuban commandos or any other foreign forces, rejecting a recent report in the British publication Jane’s Defense Weekly.

Jane’s said Vietnam has been training Cubans since at least 1990 in skills needed to attack U.S. military staging areas in the event of an American move to invade Cuba. Cuba routinely claims that the United States wants to invade it.

The Vietnamese Foreign Ministry issued a statement calling Jane’s report “completely untrue.”
