Tay Ninh (VNA) -  The Border Guard Command in the southern province of Tay Ninh on November 4 presented gifts to the border guard force in Cambodia’s Tbong Khmum province in aid of their tasks for border protection and COVID-19 prevention and control.

Each of the three gifts presented is worth 50 million VND (2,202 USD).

On the same day, the Command presented another three gifts of the same value to the border guard force in Cambodia’s Srey Veng province.

Speaking at these handover ceremonies, Colonel Le Hong Vuong, Commander of the Command, said the gifts aim to ease difficulties facing the forces in their pandemic-prevention operations.

Vuong noted recently, due to COVID-19, the Tay Ninh province border force did not have many opportunities to meet and interact with their Cambodian counterparts, but their solidarity has been well maintained.

He said they have worked closely together in managing and protecting the border and combating all kinds of crimes, especially effectively preventing illegal entry and exit activities and the epidemic from spreading across the border.

The official affirmed such cooperation should be sustained and fostered in the time to come to build a borderline of peace and friendship and to overcome the pandemic together./.
