Phnom Penh (VNA) –
A board member of the Club of Cambodian Journalists (CCJ) has lauded Vietnam’s cooperation with the World Trade Organisation (WHO) in the fight against COVID-19 and its support for Cambodia and Laos in this regard.

As ASEAN Chair 2020, Vietnam has actively cooperated with other ASEAN member countries and the international community, especially the WHO, in COVID-19 prevention and control, said Khieu Kola, who is also an international commentator on the Cambodian news channels CNC and CTN.

The Vietnamese Government, headed by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, has taken many measures to protect people’s health, contributing to ASEAN’s efforts in the battle.

Vietnam’s endeavours were reflected in PM Phuc’s speeches at the online Special ASEAN and ASEAN 3 Summits on COVID-19 on April 14, he stressed.

Khieu Kola also highlighted Vietnam’s diverse experience in battling the epidemic, particularly the slogan “people join hands in fighting the COVID-19 enemy” that was launched in a timely manner.

Competent Vietnamese agencies have remained vigilant in the work, with the highest priority given to protecting the public’s health, he said, commending Vietnam’s preparations of resources and medical materials for the fight.

Khieu Kola told the Vietnam News Agency that he believes ASEAN member countries will join hands to stamp out the pandemic in the near future./.
