Beijing, May 20, IRNA – Iranian Ambassador to China Mohammad Keshavarzzadeh said Tehran is ready to develop cultural, social and women affairs relations with Beijing.

Diplomat referred to Iranian women's role in the society, saying doctors and nurses in Iran made sacrifice in controlling coronavirus.

Iran and China have helped each other since the beginning of the outbreak and Iran was the first country which sympathized with Chinese people and government.

In spite of US' cruel sanction, Iran sent some masks for Chinese people, Keshavarzzadeh noted.

In the wake of coronavirus outbreak in Iran, Chinese government and people send donation to Tehran.

Despite US' sanctions on Iran, good achievements have been made with regard to fighting coronavirus.

In response to Chinese people's memorable act, the Iranian embassy in a message said Chinese people’s good-will "has impressed us and we now feel a heavy responsibility toward them."
