At Peru's request, China has sent an anti-epidemic medical expert group to the country, he noted, adding that he hopes that they will contribute to Peru's battle against the epidemic.

Xi said he is willing to work with his Peruvian counterpart to strengthen bilateral practical cooperation in various fields such as epidemic response, safeguard public health security, and achieve an early economic recovery, so as to usher in the 50th anniversary of China-Peru diplomatic relations next year with more tangible results.

In his letter, Vizcarra thanked the Chinese government for sending the expert team to Peru, providing and helping Peru purchase anti-epidemic supplies, as well as sharing China's experience in COVID-19 containment.

The Peruvian president reiterated that his country attaches great importance to the Peru-China comprehensive strategic partnership.

He said he believes that the Peruvian and Chinese people will eventually overcome the challenge of COVID-19 through cooperation, and demonstrate once again the resilience of the two ancient civilizations and their capacity to prevail over all adversities.
