China has sent a group of experts to Iran to help combat the novel coronavirus in the country, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying announced on Friday. She said on Twitter that the Chinese experts are on their way to Iran.
The coronavirus disease is enemy of all, Hua said, adding "we must fight together".
During his phone call with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif earlier, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China will continue to provide assistance within its capabilities to Iran in curbing the epidemic and treating the sick.
China has already donated a batch of nucleic acid detection kits and medical supplies to Iran.
