Excerpt of Foreign Ministry Regular Press Conference on April 23, 2021

Shenzhen TV: It is reported that India is experiencing a shortage of medical supplies as the country is hit by a new round of COVID-19 outbreak. Yesterday, your colleague stated China's position on the situation in India. I'd like to ask if China is having communications with India on providing help. What kind of help will China offer?

Zhao Lijian: I took note of the relevant report. China expresses sincere sympathies to India over the deteriorating situation in the country recently. The Chinese government and people firmly support the Indian government and people in fighting the coronavirus. China is ready to provide support and help according to India's need, and is in communication with the Indian side on this. We believe that the Indian people will defeat the virus at an early date.
