China will continue to provide assistance to the best of its ability to support South Korea in its fight against the epidemic. China is willing to work with South Korea to jointly overcome the epidemic as soon as possible and safeguard the life safety and health of the two peoples and the people of the world. I attach great importance to the development of China-South Korea's relations and am willing to work with President Moon Jae-in to push China-South Korea's strategic partnership to a higher level for the benefit of the two countries and their peoples.

In order to help Iran fight the epidemic, China has provided Iran with a batch of anti-epidemic materials and sent a team of volunteer health experts.

I believe the Iranian government and people will definitely win the epidemic prevention and control war.
