Phnom Penh (FN), Sep. 23 – All countries must jointly stop this crisis to the best of abilities and capacities in a sincere, responsible and humanitarian manner without any hidden political agenda, Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen addressed at the Global COVID19 Summit “Ending the Pandemic and Building Back Better” on 22 September 2021.
“The global outbreak of COVID19 is a common crisis. Hence, Cambodia agrees with the view that no one country can stop this alone. We need to work together, support each another, and remember that no one is safe until all of us are safe.”
“At the same time, I would like to emphasize that "we must jointly stop this crisis to the best of our abilities and capacities in a sincere, responsible and humanitarian manner without any hidden political agenda". In this regard, Cambodia is pleased to join the international community in committing to the “Draft Targets”, which is the key outcome of this Global COVID19 Summit”, the premier said.
In fact, as of the third quarter of 2021, the situation of COVID19 still remains highly uncertain, with the risk of new waves of more virulent coronavirus variants, and disrupts general socio-economic activities.
“With the enthusiasm for the initiative to launch the “Draft Targets”, Cambodia would like to urge all participating countries to turn these "Draft Targets" into real and pragmatic actions. In addition, Cambodia is in the view that all countries must work together and unite in solidarity to realize this main goal, do not discriminate against races and political tendencies and avoid using the fighting against COVID19 as a political agenda or to serve one's own political agendas”, the premier added.
