VTV.vn - Cambodia has presented Vietnam with 200,000 doses of Vero Cell COVID-19 vaccine produced by Sinopharm.

The Cambodian Health Ministry’s Secretary of State Or Vandine handed over the vaccines to the Vietnamese side at a ceremony held at Bavet-Moc Bai International Border Gates on October 29 morning.

In her remarks, Or Vandine said the gift demonstrates the attention and sharing of the Cambodian government and people as well as Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen towards Vietnamese people.

Cambodia hopes that the vaccines will effectively contribute to the COVID-19 fight in Vietnam, especially localities bordering Cambodia, she said, expressing her belief that Vietnam will soon contain the pandemic, restore its socio-economic activities and continue to develop sustainably.

Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Health Tran Van Thuan stressed that the gift vividly manifests the solidarity and good neighbourliness between the two countries.

Since the pandemic broke out, Vietnam and Cambodia have closely coordinated and supported each other in the combat, at both central and grassroots levels.
