On the afternoon of August 23, the Cambodian government held a ceremony at Phnom Penh International Airport to welcome the third batch of 500,000 doses of the coronavirus vaccine provided by the Chinese army to Cambodia. Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defense Diban and Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Wang Wentan delivered speeches respectively. Cambodian Minister of Health Meng Wenxing, Wang Jiajun Commander-in-Chief Umbieser and others attended.
On behalf of the Cambodian Ministry of Defense, Deputy Prime Minister Diban expressed his most sincere gratitude to the Chinese government and army for their long-standing support and assistance to the Cambodian side. He said that vaccination is an important strategy of the Cambodian government to combat the outbreak of coronavirus, and China’s selfless assistance reflects the fate of Cambodia and China as a community of suffering and mutual help, and effectively protects the lives and safety of the Cambodian people. At present, the Cambodian government is promoting “coronavirus vaccination for adolescents” and launched “coronavirus vaccination to strengthen needle vaccination”. China is the strategic reliance on the supply of coronavirus vaccine in Cambodia, and believes that Chinese vaccine will play an important role in curbing the spread of the coronavirus in Cambodia.
Ambassador Wang said that since February this year, the Cambodian outbreak has seen a more serious rebound. In accordance with Cambodia’s needs, the Chinese government and army have stepped up efforts to provide vaccines and anti-epidemic materials to The Cambodian side, and have made every effort to assist Cambodia in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak. Today is the sixth time that China has donated a coronavirus vaccine to Cambodia. Chinese vaccines have played an important role in establishing a viral immune barrier in Cambodia.
Ambassador Wang pointed out that the epidemic is a mirror, shining out of the world, both like China and Cambodia in the same boat warm current, but also the reverse flow of blame. Some countries, regardless of the safety of their own people and the overall situation of the world’s anti-epidemic, but use the “viral traceability” issue to engage in political manipulation, not only unpopular, but also doomed to lift stones to their own feet. In the face of the complex epidemic situation, China will always uphold the concept and scientific attitude of the Human Health Community, firmly oppose political traceability, and will continue to do its utmost to help the vast number of developing countries, including Cambodia, to cope with the epidemic and make China’s contribution to the eventual victory of mankind
