In a thank-you letter to Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc for Vietnam’s donation, he wrote, “This generous contribution amid Cambodia’s third community outbreak of COVID-19 demonstrates Vietnam’s spirit of good neighbourliness towards Cambodia in times of need”.
PM Hun Sen also thanks PM Phuc’s kind words of encouragement in his letter dated March 31, according to VNA.
The Cambodian PM commended Vietnam in successfully containing the outbreak of COVID-19 and reaffirmed Cambodia’s commitment to working closely with Vietnam in overcoming this unprecedented global crisis.
He reassured that Cambodia continues to treat all foreigners, including the people of Vietnamese origin, the same way as his country does with Cambodian citizens in the protection against the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The PM also expressed his appreciation to the Vietnamese Government for providing good treatment to the Cambodian community in Vietnam during this difficult time.

Earlier, on April 1, empowered by PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Nguyen Quoc Dung presented the token of the donation worth USD 200,000 to Cambodian Ambassador to Vietnam Chay Navuth to support the Cambodian Government and people in the fight against COVID-19.
In April last year, the Vietnamese Government presented an aid package to Cambodia worth over VND 7 billion (USD 303,500) that included personal protective clothing, face masks, and COVID-19 test kits.
Cambodia has so far recorded over 2,400 Covid-19 cases, with 14 deaths. While it is one of the few countries in Asia to not suffer severely from the pandemic, the number of new cases in Cambodia has risen quickly since the end of February, when outbreaks involving Chinese groups in Phnom Penh were detected./.
