Xi Jinping Holds Telephone Conversation with Nepalese President Bandari

  Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, April 27th: President Xi Jinping held a phone call with Nepali President Bhandari on the evening of the 27th.

  Xi Jinping pointed out that in the face of a sudden new coronary pneumonia epidemic, the Chinese people have taken effective measures that are in line with China's national conditions, and have gone through the most difficult period through arduous efforts. We have always kept a sober understanding of the situation, have made preparations for long-term response to changes in the external environment, and are actively promoting economic and social development to restore normal order on the premise of doing our best to prevent and control the epidemic situation. The fundamentals of China ’s long-term economic growth will not change, and we have full confidence in this.

  Xi Jinping emphasized that at the moment when the epidemic prevention and control in China were the most strenuous, the Nepalese government and people gave firm support to China, reflecting the deep friendship of the Nepalese people towards the Chinese people. China has always been concerned about the development of the epidemic in Nepal and will continue to provide firm support to fight the epidemic in Nepal. Health and medical institutions of the two countries can strengthen exchanges and cooperation. I believe that under the leadership of you and Prime Minister Oli, the Nepalese government and people will be able to overcome the epidemic as soon as possible. After the epidemic, the two sides should continue to implement the consensus reached in our mutual visits last year on cooperation in various fields and promote the continuous development of China-Nigeria strategic cooperative partnership.

  Xi Jinping emphasized that in the face of unprecedented epidemic challenges, the international community needs more solidarity and cooperation than ever before, more need to maintain multilateralism, and more need to uphold international justice and morality. China will uphold the concept of building a community of shared human destiny, actively carry out international cooperation in the fight against epidemics, and support the World Health Organization to play a leading role.

  Bhandari said that under your wise leadership, the Chinese government took timely and decisive and effective measures to successfully control the domestic epidemic situation and actively promoted the strengthening of international anti-epidemic cooperation. The Nigerian side highly appreciates this and believes that China ’s experience will increase the confidence of other countries in defeating the epidemic. Last year, you successfully paid a state visit to Nepal and pushed Nepal-China relations into a new era. The Nepalese people still have fresh memories. The Nigerian side would like to express its gratitude to China for providing the much-needed epidemic prevention medical materials for the fight against the epidemic in Nepal. Nepal will continue to promote cross-border railway cooperation between the two countries. It is believed that after the epidemic, the friendship between Nepal and China will become more unbreakable and the cooperation between the two countries will achieve more results. The Nigerian side is willing to work with China to jointly build the “Belt and Road” and promote the building of a community of shared future for mankind.

Xi Jinping Holds Telephone Conversation with Iranian President Ruhani

  Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, April 27th: President Xi Jinping held a phone call with Iranian President Rouhani on the evening of the 27th.

  On behalf of the Chinese government and the Chinese people, Xi Jinping expressed sincere condolences and firm support for the Iranian government and the Iranian people in their fight against the new coronary pneumonia epidemic. Xi Jinping pointed out that in this anti-epidemic struggle, China and Iran are in the same boat and help each other, which fully reflects the profound friendship between the two countries and the two peoples. The Chinese people are very concerned about the Iranian people's fight against the epidemic, and have provided assistance to Iran for many batches of anti-epidemic materials, and dispatched the first foreign anti-epidemic medical expert group to your country. China is willing to continue to strengthen anti-epidemic cooperation with Iraq, share anti-epidemic experience and provide assistance within its ability. I believe that under your leadership, the Iranian people will be able to overcome the epidemic as soon as possible.

  Xi Jinping emphasized that in the face of this major global public health emergency, only when the international community strengthens coordination and cooperation can it form a joint force to overcome the epidemic. Unilateral sanctions hamper Iran and the international community's anti-epidemic efforts. China firmly develops China-Iran comprehensive strategic partnership and firmly supports Iran ’s defense of national sovereignty and dignity. China is willing to work with Iran and other international communities to strengthen international anti-epidemic cooperation, strive for the ultimate victory of the anti-epidemic struggle, and contribute to maintaining world public health security.

  Rouhani said that I am very happy about China ’s successful control of the epidemic, and China ’s experience is worth learning from. In the face of the epidemic, the two countries support each other and the friendship between the two peoples is deepened. Iran is deeply grateful for China ’s timely provision of valuable material assistance to the Iranian people in fighting the epidemic, and is willing to strengthen cooperation with China in areas such as health and further develop the bilateral strategic partnership. Under the current situation, illegal unilateral sanctions against Iraq should be lifted immediately. Iran hopes to work with other countries to jointly safeguard multilateralism, defend international fairness and justice and Iran ’s legitimate rights and interests.
