The Czech Republic is willing to transfer 500,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses and a number of rapid test kits to Vietnam, Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis told Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh during their online talks on Monday.

PM Babis thanked the valuable support of the Vietnamese government and Vietnamese community in the Czech Republic for Czech people during the early stages of the pandemic.

Although the pandemic situation in the Czech Republic remains complicated, the local government will further support and cooperate with Vietnam in the fight against COVID-19.

The European country is willing to transfer 500,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses and a number of rapid test kits to Vietnam, PM Babis stated.

He added that the Czech Republic will also call on other European countries to provide Vietnam with COVID-19 vaccines such as AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, and Sinopharm, which are being widely used in the region.

PM Chinh thanked the Czech government for its assistance, as well as for the decision to donate 250,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to Vietnam, which was announced on July 26.

The Vietnamese leader affirmed that the timely and valuable support demonstrates the good traditional friendship between the two countries over the past 70 years.

During the conversations, both sides also discussed measures to bolster the traditional friendship and step up cooperation in the auto industry, transportation, education-training, and national defense-security.

Regarding trade and investment ties, Chinh suggested that the two nations closely coordinate to maximize the potential of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and EU-Vietnam Investment Protection Agreement (EVIPA).

He took the occasion to invite Babis to visit Vietnam as early as possible, while the Czech PM said he wishes to visit the country this year.
