Chinese envoy calls for solidarity with Japan to overcome pandemic

Saturday’s Yomiuri ran an op-ed by Chinese Ambassador to Japan Kong, who underscored the importance of bilateral cooperation with Japan to combat the novel coronavirus. The envoy noted that China is willing to share with Japan and the international community the data and expertise it has obtained in weathering the “first wave” of the pandemic, asserting that disinformation and prejudice toward China will not help global efforts to rein in the disease. The Chinese diplomat explained that as the Chinese government and people are extremely grateful for the medical and other assistance extended by the Japanese people, Beijing is committed to doing the same for Japan in return. He emphasized that cooperation and coordination between countries around the world is the only way to defeat the pandemic and restore social and economic development and normal life quickly.
