Vientiane (VNA) -  Vietnam’s capital city Hanoi has presented 20,000 USD to Luang Prabang province of Laos to help with the Lao northern province’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vietnamese Consul General in Luang Prabang Nguyen Dang Hung handed over the money to Luang Prabang’s governor Khamkhan Chanthavisouk on October 5.

The Vietnamese diplomat said Hanoi itself is focusing all resources on pandemic control, but at the same time, it wishes to help the Lao province in the spirit of the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two nations.

Governor Khamkhan Chanthavisouk expressed deep thanks to Hanoi for the gift, adding that he hopes to receive more support and experience sharing from Vietnam in the combat against the COVID-19.

He also wished the ties between Luang Prabang and Hanoi will further strengthen.

The Vietnamese Consulate General in Luang Prabang will continue to deliver presents from Hanoi to seven other northern Lao provinces in the days ahead./.
