|Wang Yi: The Joint Fight Against COVID-19 Is a Vivid Reflection of a China-Arab Community with a Shared Future|
On July 6, 2020, when attending the ninth ministerial meeting of the China-Arab States Cooperation Forum, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said, the Chinese side will always remember Arab states' invaluable support at the height of its battle with the coronavirus. To help Arab states fight against the pandemic, China has assisted the Arab side in procuring anti-virus materials in China, donated more than one million test kits and over 13 million masks, held videoconferences of health experts with 21 Arab states and sent medical expert teams to eight Arab states. China has also made special arrangements to provide Palestine with medical supplies and send experts to the country to introduce experience, donate money and materials to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, and send "health kits" to the refugees inside and outside Palestine.
Wang Yi stressed, China and Arab states have stood together and supported each other in the face of crisis, which is a vivid reflection of a China-Arab community with a shared future. The traditional friendship between China and Arab states will definitely be elevated and China-Arab states strategic cooperation will be brought to a new level after the test of the COVID-19 pandemic.
