"We are with Iran as coronavirus intensifies, and we believe the humanitarian aid from friends of Iran would help the country overcome the crisis," said Chang Hua during a meeting with Iranian Red Crescent Society Secretary General Mahmoudreza Peyravi.

China achieved good results in combating coronavirus, and currently, the situation is under control, so China can share its experience in the fight against the virus to Iranians, the ambassador added.

"Recently, high-ranking Chinese experts arrived in Iran to provide help in testing virus and offer their experience to the Health Ministry and the national Red Crescent," he noted. "So far, Chinese companies operating in Iran and China's Red Cross provided humanitarian help to Iran in a fight with COVID-19."

The total value of aids provided by China's Red Cross reached 8.9 million yuan ($1.2 million).
