Prime Minister Hun Sen said today that the government is ready to provide some medical aid and supplies to Timor Leste to fight COVID-19.
During a meeting and review of the work of “Samdech Techo Sen’s Volunteer Lawyers” at the Peace Palace today, Mr Hun Sen said, “Yesterday, related to the fight against COVID-19 in each country and in the region, I informed the Vietnamese Prime Minister that I was ready to help if an outbreak of COVID-19 would occur in Timor Leste.”
Timor Leste has 30 cases of COVID-19.
He said that Cambodia will use three planes to airlift masks and medical equipment to Myanmar tomorrow.
Mr Hun Sen said he did not care about criticism over Cambodia providing the masks and medical assistance to Laos and Myanmar.
He said that Cambodia has carried out humanitarian activities, including dispatching peacekeepers overseas under the United Nations umbrella.
He said that Cambodia is small but big-hearted.
Mr Hun Sen yesterday sent a letter to Aung San Suu Kyi, State Counsellor of Myanmar, saying that he had decided to provide 2 million masks and other medical supplies to the government and people of Myanmar.
On November 16, Cambodia donated two million face masks, 20,000 N95 masks, and some medical supplies to Laos to fight COVID-19.
