China is ready to provide assistance and support to the DPRK in the fight against coronavirus.


Beijing is ready to provide assistance and support to Pyongyang in the fight against coronavirus. Zhao Lijian, spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said this at a regular briefing on Thursday, commenting on reports of the epidemiological situation in the DPRK.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, the DPRK has firmly supported China in the fight against the virus. The PRC is deeply grateful for this,” the diplomat said.

“We sympathize with the North Korean side, which is facing the epidemic. As a comrade, neighbor and friend, the Chinese side is always ready to provide support and assistance to the DPRK in the fight against the epidemic,” said Zhao Lijian.

On Thursday, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported that that a "serious emergency" was recorded on the territory of the people's republic - a subtype of the strain "omicron" BA.2, also known as "stealth-omicron", was discovered. In this regard, a meeting of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea was convened, which was attended by the leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-un. The head of the people's republic instructed to introduce a lockdown in all cities and counties of the country.
