UAE sends medical supplies to Pakistan

The UAE has sent an aid plane carrying 14 metric tonnes of medical and food supplies to Pakistan.

The aid will assist over 7,000 healthcare professionals as the South Asian nation works to contain COVID-19.

Earlier this month, the UAE had already sent two batches of critical medical supplies to Pakistan.

To date, the UAE has provided more than 320 metric tonnes of aid to over 30 countries, supporting nearly 320,000 medical professionals.
Hamad Obaid Ibrahim Salem Al Zaabi, UAE Ambassador to Pakistan, said: "As part of the bilateral cooperation that has underpinned the brotherly relations between our two countries for decades, the UAE is proud to extend assistance to Pakistan in furtherance of global solidarity in the fight against COVID-19."
