BEIJING – China has sent a group of experts to Iran to help combat the novel coronavirus in the country, according to the foreign ministry.

The coronavirus disease is enemy of all, Hua said. “We must fight together".

During his phone call with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif earlier, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China will continue to provide assistance within its capabilities to Iran in curbing the epidemic and treating the sick.
