According to Phuc, this step “reflects the desire to share with the parliamentarians of the Republic of Belarus the hardships caused by the continuing spread of the COVID-19 around the world and is also based on the traditions of the long-term friendship between the two countries and the close ties between the Parliaments of Vietnam and Belarus”.
Received the face masks, Ambassador Vladimir Goshin thanked Vietnam for the timely support.
