The Policy Times Dhaka Bureau (May 21) :
On the evening of May 21(friday) Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi had a phone conversation with Bangladeshi Foreign Minister Dr. A. K. Abdul Momen at the request of the latter, and announced that China would gift the second batch of 600,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to Bangladesh.
China pays close attention to the latest situation of the epidemic, in Bangladesh. At the critical time point in Bangladesh’s fight against the epidemic, China is concerned about the urgent need for vaccine of Bangladeshi friends and overcomes the huge demand for domestic and foreign orders and the shortage of vaccine supply. Just 9 days after the arrival of the first batch of 500,000 doses of gift vaccine in Bangladesh, China once again announced the provision of the second batch of gift vaccines to Bangladesh, which fully reflects that China attaches great importance to the friendly relations between the two countries. It is believed that the arrival of the second batch of Chinese gift vaccine will definitely help the Bangladeshi government and people build a strong line of defense against the epidemic.
In the future, China is willing to provide the necessary support for Bangladesh and South Asian countries to fight the epidemic, deepen anti-epidemic cooperation with Bangladesh, and effectively protect the health and life safety of the people of the two countries.
