金边2月22日电柬埔寨国防部19日、20日向位于该国西南部的戈公省派出医护组,为当地边海防驻军等1200人接种中国军队援助的新冠疫苗。中国驻柬大使馆武官处人员带领第16批中国援柬军医专家组赴戈公省,全程协助柬方接种。

PHNOM PENH, Feb. 22 -- On February 19 and 20, the Cambodian defense ministry sent medical teams to Koh Kong Province in southwest Cambodia to vaccinate 1,200 border and coastal defense officers and soldiers with Chinese COVID-19 vaccines provided by the Chinese military.

The 16th batch of Chinese military medical experts to Cambodia, led by the Military Attache's Office of the Chinese Embassy in Cambodia, went to Koh Kong Province to assist the Cambodian medical personnel.

柬埔寨副首相兼国防大臣迪班亲自监督此次接种全过程。他20日在戈公省克马拉普明市军人疫苗接种现场说,非常感谢中方在危难时刻向柬方援助珍贵的疫苗,中方不仅在疫苗接种前对柬方医护人员进行培训,还在金边等地的疫苗接种现场协助柬方接种,真正体现了中国人民解放军和柬军之间的深情厚谊。

Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Gen. Tea Banh supervised the whole vaccination process. He said that Cambodia is very thankful for China's assistance of the precious vaccines in times of crisis. China not only trained Cambodian medical staff before the vaccination but also assisted in the vaccination sites of Phnom Penh and other places, which truly reflects the deep friendship between the two armed forces.

迪班表示,对中国军队援助的疫苗非常有信心,他要求柬军尽快组织接种,以保护官兵健康。柬军官兵陆续接种中国疫苗,为柬民众接种疫苗带了好头,也增强了军队执行抗疫等多样化任务的信心。

The Cambodian general expressed that he is very confident in the vaccines provided by the Chinese military and required the Cambodian military to organize inoculation as soon as possible to protect the health of officers and soldiers. The vaccination of Cambodian officers and soldiers with Chinese vaccines set a good example for the Cambodian people and also strengthened the confidence of the Cambodian military in fighting against COVID-19.

接种疫苗的柬军官兵表示,柬边境疫情防控任务较重,外防输入压力大,接种中国疫苗能够为他们提供坚强防护。他们感谢中方专门向柬军队捐助疫苗,新冠疫情中两国两军守望互助,充分体现了双方“铁杆”兄弟情谊。

The vaccinated Cambodian officers and soldiers said that the pandemic prevention and control task in Cambodian border areas was relatively challenging due to the great pressure from imported cases. They thanked China for donating vaccines specifically to the Cambodian military and believed the Chinese vaccines can provide them with effective protection.

应柬埔寨军队请求,经中央军委批准,中国人民解放军向柬埔寨军队提供的一批新冠疫苗于本月7日交付柬方。柬埔寨军队是首批接受中国军队新冠疫苗援助的外国军队之一。

It is learnt that at the request of the Cambodian military and approved by China’s Central Military Commission (CMC), a batch of COVID-19 vaccines provided by the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) were delivered to the Cambodian military on February 7. The Cambodian military was one of the first foreign troops to receive the PLA’s COVID-19 vaccine aid.
