Vietnamese Ambassador to Mongolia Doan Khanh Tam has handed US$50,000 to a Mongolian agency as support from the Vietnamese government for Mongolia’s COVID-19 fight.

Ambassador Tam, on behalf of the Vietnamese government, presented the cash donation to Brigadier General G. Ariunbuyan, chief of Mongolia’s National Emergency Management Agency, on Monday, the Vietnam News Agency reported.

The Mongolian official, also deputy head of Mongolia's COVID-19 control committee, sincerely thanked the government and people of Vietnam for their support for Mongolia’s response to the pandemic.

The donation came as both countries are still facing difficulties in pushing back COVID-19 and post-pandemic economic recovery, Brigadier General Ariunbuyan said.

He expressed his pleasure at the positive development of the traditional friendship between Vietnam and Mongolia, especially fruitful outcomes in political, economic, trade, and humanitarian cooperation in the past years.

Mongolia will use the donated money to procure medical protective equipment for COVID-19 frontline workers, the Mongolian official said.

The host wished Vietnam would continue putting the pandemic under control and achieve stable economic growth.

Ambassador Tam highly appreciated Mongolia’s effective epidemic prevention and control and believed that Mongolia, under the leadership of the Mongolian government, will be soon able to contain the pandemic, recover its economy, and continue to develop sustainably.

He also said Vietnam is focusing all its resources on pandemic prevention and control and economic recovery.

Currently, around 200 Vietnamese people are living, working, and studying in Mongolia, which established diplomatic relations with Vietnam in 1954. 

In August this year, the Vietnamese community in Mongolia donated over $7,000 to Vietnam’s COVID-19 fight through the Vietnamese Embassy there.
