|China and Egypt Decide to Provide Vaccine Assistance to the Palestinian People in the Gaza Strip|
On July 18, 2021 local time, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talks with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry in El Alamein.
The two sides pay close attention to the situation after the recent Palestine-Israel conflict and hold that while continuing to promote a just settlement of the Palestinian question, both sides should be concerned about the humanitarian situation of the Palestinian people, and in particular, should take specific measures to help the Palestinian people fight the COVID-19 pandemic. In this regard, China and Egypt decided to jointly provide 500,000 doses of vaccines to the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip based on the COVID-19 vaccine filling plant jointly established by the two countries in Egypt to address the urgent needs of the local people. This batch of aid will be implemented as soon as possible through coordination with Palestine.
