Speaking at the handover ceremony, Phuc said the COVID-19 pandemic has spread to 213 countries and territories, causing severe losses on economic and social areas worldwide.

Vietnam has so far recorded 327 infection cases, 278 of them have fully recovered, and zero deaths. The country has gone more than 40 days without transmission in the community and entered a new period of fighting the epidemic and restoring the economy.

During the fight against COVID-19, Vietnam has received support from countries, international friends, he said, hoping that the gift of the Vietnamese legislature will help the countries soon win over the pandemic.

On behalf of recipients, Palestinian Ambassador to Vietnam Saadi Salama expressed his profound thanks to the Vietnamese NA and people for providing assistance for parliaments and people of countries.

He believed that all-around ties between Vietnam and countries, and between Vietnamese and foreign legislatures, would continue growing./.
