The Brunei Ministry of Health announced on the 10th local time that the Brunei government had received a batch of Chinese-assisted coronavirus vaccines on the 9th and was arranging the relevant vaccination plan.
Brunei’s Ministry of Health said in a press release on the same day that Brunei provided assistance to China in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic occurred in China.
China has also provided financial and material assistance to the Chinese side in the fight against the pandemic, especially China’s provision of COVID-19 vaccine this time.
The mutual assistance between the two countries in the face of the pandemic shows a friendly friendship between the two countries to overcome difficulties.
The close bilateral cooperation in the fight against the pandemic reflects the common will of the two countries to strengthen strategic partnership of cooperation within the background of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries this year.
Brunei’s Ministry of Health said that Brunei will continue to properly arrange the COVID-19 vaccination program in accordance with the established priority order, and will provide Bruneian people with vaccination-related information and health advice.
Yu Hong, the Chinese ambassador to Brunei, said that China’s assistance to Brunei’s coronavirus vaccine is a new climax of the anti-pandemic cooperation between the two countries since the outbreak of the pandemic, which has added a strong color to the anti-pandemic cooperation between the two countries.
At present, vaccines are concentrated in a few developed countries, and advancing vaccine implementation plans is essential for countries to restart their economies.
China’s assistance to Brunei with a coronavirus vaccine in this situation highlights the brotherly true friendship between the two countries.
Brunei Foreign Minister Eric Wan expressed his sincere gratitude to China at the vaccine reception ceremony held on the 9th, saying that this is the first batch of coronavirus vaccine received by Brunei, a gift given by the Chinese people to the Brunei people, reflecting the long-standing traditional friendship and deep mutual trust between the two countries.
He said that the Chinese vaccine will play an important role in Brunei’s victory over the pandemic.
The Brunei side is willing to take the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries and the 30th anniversary of the establishment of dialogue relations between China-ASEAN as an opportunity to promote bilateral relations and China-ASEAN relations to a new level.
