Cambodian FM says WHO’s efforts, role in fighting COVID-19 laudable

Cambodian Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn said on Thursday that the World Health Organization (WHO)’s efforts and role in advancing global battle against the COVID-19 pandemic are laudable.

“We should praise the efforts and the leading role of the WHO as a respectable world health entity in providing information, training, recommendations and guidance for the greater cause of mankind,” he said during the special ASEAN-U.S. Foreign Ministers’ meeting on COVID-19 via video conference.

According to a Cambodian foreign ministry’s statement released after the meeting, Sokhonn, who is also a deputy prime minister, said Cambodia has tried to minimize the negative impacts of this pandemic on its economy as well as to prepare for the recovery phase by keeping factories running and thus preventing workers from losing their jobs.
