Given the two sides’ traditional ties and strategic partnership, and the spirit of mutual support and soliarity of ASEAN member states during challenging times, the Vietnamese Government has decided to do its part to help Myanmar in their anti-pandemic efforts and pull through this tough time, said Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Quoc Dung at the handover ceremony.
As ASEAN Chair 2020 and a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the 2020- 2021 tenure, the country will continue to work closely alongside Myanmar and other regional partners in the battle against the global pandemic.
