On 10 March, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi took a phone call from Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio of Italy.
Wang noted that China will never forget the invaluable support from Italy when China was at the most trying moment of its epidemic response. Likewise, China will firmly stand by the Italian people under the current circumstances. Although demand for medical supplies remains high in China, we will overcome difficulties to provide masks and other medical supplies to Italy and increase export of materials and equipment badly needed in Italy. China is ready to send a medical team to Italy if Italy so wishes.
On 11 March,China aid is sending to Italy immediately.
