Beijing Helping Kabul to Fight COVID-19: Afghan envoy
Afghanistan’s Ambassador to China Javed Qaem on Wednesday said efforts were underway to gain further assistance from the neighboring country for prevention of Covid-19, but what the Afghans needed the most was to practice Ministry of Public Health (MoPH)’s guidelines.
Qaem told Pajhwok Afghan News during an inclusive interview that government factories in China had resumed productions and they had collected and already shared with MoPH the prices of important and necessary equipment.
He said, “China and other countries will support us in this regard, but practicing the guidelines will have more effect than the foreign aid.”
He said on April 2, the Chinese Ambassador in Kabul handed over the first batch of Covid-19 prevention materials to the Afghan government.
He said further assistance from China was expected over the next two weeks, saying the Chinese government besides the first batch of Covid-19 prevention materials was also sharing experience of the battle against COVID-19 with the Afghan government.
He said the Chinese government and doctors also shared information and experiences with a number of Asian countries, including Afghanistan, through video conferences in recent past.
