Praising the excellent results of the Vietnamese Government and people in their efforts to control and prevent Covid-19 infections, the Omani Ambassador stated, “The support of the Vietnamese people has deep meaning because a true friend is someone who is always with you in difficult situations. The people of Oman always respect and appreciate the brotherhood of countries that stand side by side with the Sultanate of Oman to provide medical supplies in this difficult situation.”
