A special chartered flight from Air China arrived this morning at Eleftherios Venizelos airport carrying 10 tons of medical supplies including face and surgical masks, medical goggles, gloves and shoe covers, according to a Chinese embassy briefing.

Chinese ambassador to Greece, Zhang Qiyue delivered the supplies to a government delegation led by State Minister George Gerapetritis and Health Minister Vasilis Kikilias, who expressed our country’s gratitude to the Chinese government. Mr. Kikilias stressed that in the face of global shortage of these supplies, this donation comes as a great relief in the fight to equip our hospitals.

After thanking the Greek government for its strong support during China’s fight against the coronavirus, Ms. Qiyue said that we could overcome this challenge together, armed with solidarity and cooperation between the two peoples.
