Hanoi (VNA) - Numerous Latin American progressive political parties have spoken highly of Vietnam’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic over the recent past.

The Dominican Republic's United Left Movement (MIU) of the ruling bloc expressed its admiration for Vietnam’s early preparations against the pandemic. The message said despite being one of the first nations in the world impacted by the pandemic, Vietnam has taken drastic actions right from the start, together with a close cooperation of the whole political system and solidarity among the whole people in order to limit the impact of the pandemic. As a result, the number of infection cases in Vietnam is relatively low compared with those in other nations.

The MIU’s message underlined that the political and social visions of the Communist Party of Vietnam and the Vietnamese Government as well as their readiness in terms of science and technology and health care have become the key factors for the country to achieve encouraging outcomes in the combat against the pandemic.

Meanwhile, the Communist Party of Chile also expressed its admiration on the measures Vietnam has taken to contain the spread of the pandemic in the context that many other nations are struggling against it, describing Vietnam with its achievements in the fight as a role model for many other governments in the world. 

Earlier, head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations Hoang Binh Quan sent his message to the Latin American progressive parties, including the MIU, the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) and the Communist Party of Chile, expressing solidarity and sharing with the Latin American nations for the difficulties they are facing amid the pandemic./.
