Nguyen welcomed and thanked the U.S. for its pledge to provide US$4 billion to the COVID-19 Vaccines Global Access initiative (COVAX), saying that Viet Nam has received around 2.5 million doses via this mechanism.

The COVAX initiative is really a precious and timely assistance for Viet Nam and many other developing countries in combatting the COVID-19 pandemic amid global vaccine shortage.

Nguyen also welcomed the U.S. Administration’s commitment to share an additional 80 million vaccine doses with the international community, expressing his wish that the U.S. will continue assisting Viet Nam and other countries in accessing COVID-19 vaccine supply sources.

The Vietnamese Head of State took the occasion to affirm that Viet Nam always attaches great importance to the comprehensive partnership with the U.S., hoping that both sides will continue to further deepen the bilateral ties in a practical manner, thus bringing benefits to people of the two countries, and contributing to maintaining peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world./.
