Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi made the remarks while responding to a question posed by an African journalist at a press conference where he spoke after the annual Chinese national legislative session on Sunday.
Wang Yi said the Asian country and the African continent were brothers. In his own words, the Foreign minister said, “China is also considering further bilateral support for African countries under the greatest strain to help African brothers and sisters through this difficult time.”
“Our people, having fought shoulder to shoulder for national liberation, are partners for common development. A few years back, we were together fighting Ebola,” Minister Wang Yi continued.
China has been helping Africa in its fight against COVID-19. The communist regime has sent medical experts and medical supplies worth billions of dollars to different parts of the world including Africa.
“Africa and China are friends and, more importantly, comrades in arm. Nothing can change or damage this friendship.”
“Resident Chinese medical teams based in 45 African countries have acted swiftly to assist in the local response. They have held nearly 400 training sessions for tens of thousands of African medical workers.
“China also looks after the African community in China just like it takes care of its own families.”
On the fight against COVID and the country’s help to Africa, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said: “First, China will continue to stand by Africa as it fights the virus. China will send anti-epidemic assistance to African and other developing countries as a matter of priority. China is considering sending more medical expert teams to the continent.
“China will continue to deliver on the health initiative announced at the FOCAC Beijing Summit. China will accelerate construction of the Africa CDC headquarters, and help boost public health capacity in African nations.”
