On 20 February, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met the press with Lao Foreign Minister Saleumxay Kommasith in Vientiane after the Fifth Lancang-Mekong Cooperation (LMC) Foreign Ministers' Meeting. Wang said that this meeting, held at a particular moment in the fight against the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), is a living testimony to LMC's fine tradition of mutual assistance and kinship and the solidarity among riparian countries in times of adversity. When brothers share the same conviction, they can easily break a strong piece of metal.
