The United Arab Emirates (UAE) sent a relief plane carrying 60 tonnes of medicines to Turkmenistan on Friday, part of the 90 tonnes allocated to help approximately 90,000 medical professionals in the Turkmen country as they battle on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.
Abdulaziz al-Hashimi, Chargé d'Affaires of the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Turkmenistan, referred in positive terms to the important cooperation between the two countries: "The United Arab Emirates and Turkmenistan enjoy distinguished bilateral relations that are notable for the support of the leadership of both friendly countries in efforts to strengthen and constantly develop the relationship on all fronts to achieve shared interests. "The UAE hopes that the medical aid sent will help build capacity among Turkmenistan's medical professionals and offer additional protection as they fight COVID-19," Al-Hashimi added, as reported by the Emirate's WAM news agency.
This assistance is part of the great work being done by the Arab country with great leadership in international humanitarian cooperation to address the coronavirus health crisis. So far, the Emirates has responded to the pandemic by providing more than 1,248 tons of aid to 92 countries in need, supporting more than one million medical professionals in the process.
