In order to support Lao Ministry of Health in the prevention and control of Covid-19 pandemic, in the afternoon of July 15, the Ministry of Health of Vietnam donated 200.000 medical masks to Lao Ministry of Health.

Lao ambassador to Vietnam Sengphet Houngbounguang expressed his honor on behalf of the Lao’s government. The Ministry of Health of Lao thanked and accepted the meaningful gift of the Ministry of Health of Vietnam and congratulated achievements in Vietnam’s epidemic prevention and control in recent times.

Acting Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long said that Vietnam highly appreciated the efforts of Lao’s government and people in the prevention and control of Covid-19 pandemic.

In addition to Covid-19 pandemic, there are still many diseases that can spread all over the world, so it is necessary to establish a regular communication system between 2 sides.

Great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between Vietnam and Lao have a long tradition. Two countries maintain good bilateral cooperation mechanisms and strengthen external cooperation.

This is the result of the sacrifices of the previous generations. This strong relationship will surely be cherished and passed on to next generations./.
