On the evening of the 24th, President Xi Jinping made a phone call with Brazilian President Bolsonaro at an appointment.

 

On behalf of the Chinese government and the Chinese people, Xi Jinping expressed sincere condolences and firm support to the Brazilian government and the Brazilian people in their fight against novel coronavirus pneumonia. Xi Jinping pointed out that recently, the epidemic has broken out in many places around the world and spread rapidly. It is imperative that all countries strengthen cooperation. China has always adhered to the concept of a community of human destinies, released epidemic information in a timely manner in an open, transparent and responsible manner, shared prevention and treatment experiences with WHO and the international community without reservation, and tried its best to provide assistance to all parties. I am very concerned about the development of the epidemic in Brazil and hope that Brazil will contain the spread of the epidemic as soon as possible. Today, China held a video working conference with Latin American and Caribbean countries including Brazil to exchange views on epidemic prevention and control. China is willing to provide Brazil with assistance within its capabilities and contribute to preventing the spread of the epidemic worldwide.

 

Xi Jinping stressed that China has made great sacrifices to fight the epidemic and won precious time for the international community, which has already made public opinions on this. China and Brazil are comprehensive strategic partners to each other. Both sides should maintain strategic concentration, We will support each other's core interests and major concerns, jointly send a united voice to the international community, and send a positive signal to jointly deal with the epidemic. At the same time, we will promote practical cooperation in various fields, strengthen communication and cooperation within multilateral frameworks such as the Group of Twenty and the BRICS countries, and jointly safeguard and develop the comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Brazil. I believe that China and Brazil will work together to overcome the epidemic and push all-round cooperation between China and Brazil to a new level.

 

Bolsonaro said that the current novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic is spreading in Brazil. Brazil thanks China for facilitating Brazil's purchase of necessary medical supplies in China and hopes to strengthen the exchange of prevention and control experiences with China, jointly combat the epidemic and contain the spread of the domestic epidemic as soon as possible. I pay tribute to the great Chinese people and reiterate that Brazil-China friendship and Brazil-China comprehensive strategic partnership are indestructible. Brazil is willing to strengthen bilateral cooperation with China and strengthen communication and coordination within multilateral frameworks such as the Group of Twenty to play its due role in fighting the epidemic and economic recovery.

 

Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke by telephone with French President Macron on the evening of the 23rd.

 

Xi Jinping stressed that since January this year, during the critical period of fighting novel coronavirus pneumonia, I have spoken to the President three times, fully demonstrating the high level of mutual trust between us and the high level of China-French relations. The two countries carry forward the friendly tradition of sympathy and support for each other and assist each other in medical and epidemic prevention materials, setting an example for the people of all countries to help each other and overcome difficulties together. I pay close attention to the current epidemic situation in Europe and France. France is taking a series of active and effective prevention and control measures. I would like to express my sincere condolences and firm support to the French Government and people. China is willing to continue to provide France with support and assistance to the best of its ability.

 

Upon enquiry, Xi Jinping introduced the situation of epidemic prevention and control in China. It is emphasized that China and France jointly shoulder the arduous responsibility of safeguarding international and regional public health safety. The two sides should cooperate sincerely, promote joint research projects, strengthen border health and quarantine cooperation, support the work of WHO, jointly help African countries to do a good job in epidemic prevention and control, and strive to build a health community. China is willing to work with France to promote all parties concerned to strengthen coordination and cooperation under the framework of the United Nations, the Group of Twenty and other countries, to carry out joint defense and control, to improve global health governance, to help developing countries and other countries in need to strengthen capacity-building, to resist the impact of the epidemic on the world economy, and to let the sunshine of cooperation dispel the haze of the epidemic.

 

Macron introduced the current epidemic situation in France and the relevant measures taken. Macron said that the Chinese government and the Chinese people have taken great courage and decisive measures to effectively control the epidemic in a short period of time, which I highly appreciate. France sincerely thanks China for its valuable support and help. France is willing to carry out bilateral health cooperation with China and jointly promote all parties to strengthen cooperation within multilateral frameworks such as the Group of Twenty and WHO to jointly overcome the epidemic and cope with its impact on the world economy.

 

On the evening of the 23rd, President Xi Jinping spoke by telephone with Egyptian President Sisi.

 

Xi Jinping pointed out that during this period of time, the epidemic broke out in many countries and locations around the world. Facts have once again shown that human beings are a community of destiny sharing weal and woe. All countries must unite and cooperate to deal with it together. China will work with other countries to strengthen international epidemic prevention cooperation based on the concept of a community of human destinies, jointly deal with common threats and challenges, and safeguard global public health safety. After the outbreak of the epidemic, Egypt expressed its support for China's fight against the epidemic, reflecting the deep friendship between China and Egypt through thick and thin and the high level of the comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries. Egypt is also currently facing the urgent task of fighting the epidemic. China is willing to share with Egypt the epidemic information, prevention and treatment experience, medical research results, provide medical materials, support Egypt's epidemic prevention and control work, and jointly fight the epidemic. I believe this joint fight against the epidemic will deepen the traditional friendship between China and Egypt. China attaches great importance to the development of China-Egypt relations and is willing to work hand in hand with Egypt to deepen practical cooperation in various fields and make China-Egypt relations a pilot model for building a common destiny between China, Arab countries and China and Africa.

 

Sisi said that China has made positive progress in fighting the epidemic, which proves once again that Mr. President's wise leadership is strong and the Chinese people are united and great. Egypt has always believed that China can successfully overcome the epidemic and will certainly be stronger. Egypt thanks China for its support and help and believes that through joint efforts to combat the epidemic, the friendly relations between Egypt and China will be deepened. Egypt and China are special and friendly partners. I attach great importance to Egypt-China relations and am willing to work with China to promote pragmatic and mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields between the two countries and strengthen communication and coordination in international affairs.

 

Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke by telephone with British Prime Minister Johnson on the evening of the 23rd.

 

On behalf of the Chinese government and the Chinese people, Xi Jinping expressed sincere condolences to the British government and the British people in their fight against novel coronavirus pneumonia. Upon enquiry, Xi Jinping introduced China's measures to prevent and control the novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, stressing that he hoped the UK would strengthen cooperation with China to minimize the risk of spread of the epidemic while ensuring the smooth flow of necessary personnel and trade. China is willing to provide support and help to Britain. He believe that under the leadership of the Prime Minister, the British people will be able to overcome the epidemic.

 

Xi Jinping stressed that the Chinese government attaches great importance to protecting the health and life safety of overseas Chinese citizens. It is hoped that the British side will take effective measures to safeguard the health, safety and legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens in Britain, especially overseas students.

 

Xi Jinping pointed out that the virus knows no borders or races, and only through joint efforts can all mankind win the war. Countries should promote cooperation within the framework of the United Nations and the Group of Twenty, strengthen the exchange and sharing of information and experience, strengthen cooperation in scientific research, support WHO to play its due role, promote the improvement of global health governance, strengthen macroeconomic policy coordination, stabilize the market, ensure growth and people's livelihood, and ensure the openness, stability and security of the global supply chain. I believe that after the victory over the epidemic, China and Britain will have a deeper understanding of each other, a broader consensus and a broader prospect for cooperation between the two countries.

 

Johnson said that the Chinese government and the Chinese people have made great achievements in preventing and controlling the epidemic through hard work and great efforts. I congratulate them. At present, the epidemic situation in Britain is grim. The UK is studying and learning from China's useful experience and taking scientific and effective prevention and control measures. The British side thanks China for its valuable support and help and will do its best to take good care of the health and safety of Chinese citizens in Britain, especially overseas students. I fully agree with President Xi Jinping that no country can be isolated from the epidemic and all countries should strengthen cooperation. The UK supports WHO to play an important role and hopes that all parties will deepen relevant cooperation within multilateral frameworks such as the Group of Twenty. China and Britain will host the 15th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity and the 26th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change respectively this year. Both sides should take this opportunity to promote the international community to strengthen health and epidemic prevention cooperation. I look forward to maintaining close contacts with President Xi Jinping and visiting China as soon as possible after the epidemic to jointly promote the development of UK-China relations.
