Vietnam hopes that its support will partly help the Lao and Cambodia people overcome difficulties at present, he said.

Dung suggested the Lao and Cambodian governments continue creating favourable conditions for Vietnamese communities living in the host countries, enabling them to access necessary medical services in case of Covid-19 infection.

He expressed his belief that Laos and Cambodia, together with Vietnam and other ASEAN member states, will stand united and help each other drive back the pandemic in the spirit of the ASEAN Chair’s Statement on Covid-19 Prevention and Control.

Lao Ambassador Sengphet Houngboungnuang and Cambodian Ambassador Chay Navuth said the gifts provide a great source of encouragement for Laos and Cambodia to weather the existing challenges.
