HÀ NỘI — Based on the circumstances and the needs of those involved, Việt Nam is discussing the step-by-step resumption of travel with a number of countries, including China, the Republic of Korea, and Japan, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lê Thị Thu Hằng said on Thursday.
She passed on the information while answering questions from reporters on the possibility of resuming travel with other nations given that Việt Nam has initially controlled the spread of COVID-19.
Any resumption, she emphasised, must be based on compliance with disease prevention measures and specific conditions, so as not to cause the virus to spread.
The task will initially focus on creating favourable conditions for experts and managers from these countries to come back to Việt Nam and for Vietnamese interns and workers to return to these countries for work, she added. — VNS
