NDO/VNA – The Parliament of Latvia (Saeima) has announced that it will resell to Vietnam 200,000 doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

This is in response to a letter of Chairman of the Vietnamese National Assembly Vuong Dinh Hue addressed to heads of parliaments in European nations attending the Fifth World Conference of Speakers of Parliament (WCSP5) in Austria last month.

NA Chairman Hue has expressed his gratitude to Speaker of the Saeima Inara Murniece and members of the Latvian Parliament for the vaccine support.
In his thank-you note, he said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Health and relevant agencies of Vietnam have rolled out necessary measures to purchase and receive the vaccine in the quickest time possible.

He voiced his delight that the traditional friendship and multifaceted cooperation between Vietnam and Latvia at large, and the countries’ parliaments in particular, have been strengthened over the years.
