China and India to send vaccines to Palestinians

China has decided to donate COVID-19 vaccines to Palestine, the country's Ambassador Geng Shuang told the UN Security Council during its monthly meeting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

China and India plan to send COVID-19 vaccines to the occupied West Bank and Gaza amid calls for donor countries to ensure pandemic protection for the Palestinians.

 

"China has decided to donate COVID-19 vaccines to Palestine," the country's Ambassador Geng Shuang told the United Nations Security Council during its monthly meeting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

 

"These vaccines will be delivered to Palestine real soon. We will continue to do our best to help Palestine fight the pandemic," Geng said.


He noted that China had already sent medical supplies to 141 health centers for Palestinian refugees run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in the occupied West Bank, Gaza, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.

 

India's Deputy Representative Nagaraj Naidu said that his county would "facilitate an early supply of vaccines to Palestine."

 

He added that, "equity in access to vaccines across the world is important for mitigating the impact of the pandemic."

 

India has already sent medicines and medical supplies to the Palestinians and plans to send a second shipment of such aid, he said.

 

Both China and India are exporters of COVID-19 vaccines. Neither envoy gave details with respect to how many vaccines they would send.
