Payne to visit Cambodia after Pfizer delay

Foreign Minister Marise Payne is expected to visit Cambodia after Prime Minister Hun Sen questioned Australia’s commitment to deliver on two million doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine promised earlier this year.

“Australia had promised to donate the Pfizer vaccines and this was long overdue but if there is uncertainty about getting it, then our next decision is to buy the Sinovac vaccines,” Hun Sen told a televised press conference.

He said the secretary of state for the Ministry of Economy, Vongsey Vissoth, had been directed to check on the vaccines with the Australian embassy in Phnom Penh.
