He suggested Israel help Viet Nam access sources of COVID-19 vaccine and drug supply as soon and as much as possible, and transfer part of its vaccines that Israel has signed with partners.

The two PMs pledged to tighten cooperation to further deepen the multi-faceted ties between the two countries, speed up the negotiation and signing of bilateral trade and labor agreements.
