On June 3, Chinese Charge d'Affaires ad Interim to Mozambique Zhang Xiangyan and Minister of Health of Mozambique Armindo Tiago attended the handover ceremony of the second batch of Chinese medical supplies at the country's national medical supplies storage center.
Zhang and Tiago exchanges the handover certificates on behalf of their respective governments. Chinese Economic and Commercial Counselor to Mozambique Liu Xiaoguang and officials from the national medical supplies storage center and health ministry were in attendance.
Zhang said that China and Mozambique are good friends, good partners and good brothers. The two countries' friendship has a long history and is becoming even stronger as time goes by.
Since the outbreak of the virus, Mozambique President Filipe Nyusi quickly sent his regards to China. And now China has also provided strong support to Mozambique in its fight against the pandemic. That the governments and peoples of the two countries stand together and look out for each other shows their brotherly friendship sharing weal and woe. It is believed that with the joint efforts of the two countries and the international society at large the government and people of Mozambique will surely defeat the virus at an early date.

On behalf of the Mozambique government, Tiago thanked the Chinese government and people for their selfless assistance. The China-Mozambique friendship grows stronger through thick and thin. The two countries cooperation in the health field covers infrastructure facilities, human resources and medical supplies and is an important influence on improvising Mozambique’s public health system.
Currently, the virus is spreading in Mozambique, and the country is faced with a serious challenge of pandemic prevention and control. The medical supplies donated by China will enhance the safety protection of the medical workers and improve the country's anti-pandemic capability.
The second batch of medical supplies donated by the Chinese government included N95 masks, surgical masks, disposable protective gowns, medical goggles, shoe covers and surgical gloves.
