On April 30, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi had a phone conversation with Indian Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar. That night, Jaishan Su sent three tweets to inform the content of the call.
Jaishan Su said that Foreign Minister Wang Yi expressed China’s condolences to India for the challenge of the new crown epidemic. The two sides discussed international cooperation in public health in response to this difficult situation.
Jaishan Su said that during the call, he emphasized the importance of keeping the supply chain and flights unblocked under these circumstances, and welcomed Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s assurance in this regard, and further opened up charter flights to India.
In addition, the two sides also discussed the comprehensive and sincere implementation of the consensus reached in Moscow, that is, to complete disengagement at all friction points along the line of actual control and fully restore peace and tranquility in eastern Ladakh. Both parties agreed to maintain communication on this.
There was a border conflict between the two countries before. Even though China has greatly assisted India with anti-epidemic supplies, the high-level officials of the two sides have not contacted. This is the first contact in the near future.
As the epidemic in India is about to run out of control, India has received support from all countries. Among them, for oxygen generators, India received 3 units from the United Kingdom, 20 units from Russia, 275 units from the United States, and 30,000 units from China.
According to incomplete statistics, since April, China has exported more than 30,000 ventilators and oxygen generators, more than 15,000 monitors, and nearly 3,800 tons of medical materials and medicines to India. China’s relevant anti-epidemic materials and medical equipment companies are working hard, working overtime, and speeding up production. In the next few days, more anti-epidemic resources will continue to be sent to India. .
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said that China will continue to maintain a smooth channel for exports of materials to India.
