Cambodia and Vietnam will reopen their land borders, which have been closed for more than two years, after health authorities in Phnom Penh reported that the number of daily Covid-19 cases had fallen to zero for five days in a row.
The decision was made between Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and his Vietnamese counterpart Pham Minh Chinh, who also agreed to reopen air tourism. Both are attending an ASEAN summit in the United States.
“Cambodia ranks at the top for having the lowest Covid-19 cases in the ASEAN region. There is no death confirmed for a month now,” Hun Sen said during a meeting with Cambodians living in the United States and Canada. He did not give a date for the border reopening.
