A ceremony, during which the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) donated anti-epidemic goods to Pakistani women, was held in the Embassy of Pakistan in China on June 4, 2020. Xia Jie, Vice-President and Member of the Secretariat of the ACWF, and Naghmana A. Hashmi, then-Ambassador of Pakistan to China, attended.
Xia noted, since the outbreak of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), China and Pakistan have supported and closely cooperated with each other and the efforts made by the two countries in jointly fighting COVID-19 have strongly reflected that China and Pakistan are true friends sharing weal and woe. Xia said she hoped the 20,000 masks donated by the ACWF will provide assistance for women in Pakistan.
Xia also outlined important strategic achievements reached by China in its epidemic prevention and containment efforts under significant decisions and arrangements made by Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, and the "half the sky" role played by Chinese women in epidemic prevention and containment.
Hashmi expressed gratitude to the ACWF for the donation and for the federation's sincere concern for women in Pakistan. Hashmi said she hoped women in Pakistan and China will further deepen cooperation and jointly advance the development of the two countries' relationship after the end of the pandemic.
