In a letter sent to the Vietnamese Embassy in Phnom Penh, the Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the entry of Vietnamese and Cambodian citizens into Vietnam will be suspended from 23:59 on March 20 to avoid inconvenience related to medical quarantine requirements.
