PM Phuc said he had recently talked over the phone with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen on the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and announced Vietnam’s decision to provide medical supplies worth 100,000 USD to Cambodia. He added that the Vietnamese Health Ministry will present Cambodia with SARS-CoV-2 test kits worth over 210,000 USD. PM Phuc stressed that the biggest outcome of bilateral cooperation last year was the signing of legal documents recognizing the achievements in land border delimitation and border marker planting. He asked Cambodia to tighten border control for epidemic prevention while still facilitating the flow of goods across the border. The Vietnamese Government leader also urged that the two countries increase cooperation in finance and transport, and pledged to assist Cambodia in training in the field of security-national defence.

Ambassador Chay Navuth thanked the Vietnamese Government for its provision of medical supplies for Cambodia to fight the Covid-19 pandemic. He pledged to work as a bridge to further strengthen bilateral ties.
