"I had a telephone conversation with the President of Vietnam, Nguyen Xuan Phuc. I thanked for the donation of 12 thousand tons of rice. We ratify the excellent state of our political ties and the will to continue intensifying cooperation in confronting #COVID19."
On the other hand, Vietnam reported that Cuba will send a large number of Abdala until the end of the year. Likewise, Cuba will help with any transfer of technology needed to produce the vaccines.
Like Cuba, Vietnam is experiencing a major outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic with reports of over 10 000 cases daily.
