UNITED NATIONS, April 8 (Xinhua) -- China's UN ambassador on Wednesday wrote to General Assembly President Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and all permanent representatives and permanent observers to the United Nations to introduce China's fight against COVID-19 and its cooperation with the international community.
The letter by Ambassador Zhang Jun outlines major actions and important experience of China in the fight against the pandemic, according to China's Permanent Mission to the United Nations.
Under the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China and the Chinese government, and with tremendous sacrifice, 1.4 billion Chinese people have united together in the fight against the pandemic, and achieved important periodic results in 83 days, says the letter.
The letter also demonstrates the enormous contribution China has made to international cooperation against the pandemic, according to the Chinese Mission.
Defeating COVID-19 requires all member states to strengthen confidence, take concrete action in a responsible manner, respect science and facts, and address the challenge with solidarity and collaboration. China resolutely rejects any discrimination or stigmatization against states, peoples or individuals, says the letter.
In the face of this tremendous test on humankind, the international community must collectively fight the pandemic and work toward a community of shared future for mankind, it says.
