KUNMING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- A batch of anti-pandemic medical supplies departed from the city of Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province, on Friday morning, heading for Laos.

"The lab was equipped and established by a donation from the Chinese government at a critical time," Mahdi said. "When this lab was established, Iraq had only one working lab fighting COVID-19."

"We are at a very critical moment for our relations between China and the United States. In a way, we can say it's unprecedented since Dr. Henry Kissinger's visit almost half a century ago," said Cui.
Only when the United States is ready to reduce its arsenal to the size of China's can both sides begin real negotiation, he said, adding, "I hope we could be given a very convincing answer."
He said when China was severely hit by the pandemic in early 2020, Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen made a special visit to Beijing to show support in fighting the virus, and showed his confidence and trust on China's ability to cope with crisis.
"We have to keep national security concerns in perspective. Not everything is a national security emergency," said Craig Allen, president of the U.S.-China Business Council in a panel discussion on the occasion of releasing the survey report.
Hu Baoguo, deputy mayor of Kunming, said that the city of Vientiane and various sectors of society had donated 261,000 yuan (about 37,500 U.S. dollars) worth of medical supplies to Kunming since the epidemic was first reported in the province.
