China moves amid Corona tragedy! First offer of help from India and now stopped medical supplies

China’s state-owned Sichuan Airlines has postponed all its cargo (cargo) flights to India for the next 15 days, causing a major impediment for private traders to obtain essential oxygen concentrators and other medical supplies from Beijing. Has occurred. The company took this step in view of the increasing cases of Kovid-19 by the Chinese government. & Lsquo; Support & Support to India & rsquo; Is raised despite being offered.

& nbsp;

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said in a press conference on Monday in response to questions by Sichuan Airlines about postponement of cargo flights to India, & lsquo; & lsquo; China is closely monitoring the epidemic situation in India. Our sympathies are with India for the worsening situation. & Rsquo; & rsquo;

& nbsp;

He said, & lsquo; & lsquo; We have said that we are ready to help India in the first available opportunity in the fight against the virus. Both sides are discussing this. & Rsquo; & rsquo; He, however, did not confirm the tweet of the Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka stating that China had started supplying oxygen concentrators to India. The Chinese Embassy in Colombo said in a tweet, & lsquo; & lsquo; Today 800 oxygen concentrators have been picked up from Hong Kong to Delhi, a thousand concentrators will be sent in a week. China is in touch with India in view of urgency. & Rsquo; & rsquo;

& nbsp;

Asked for feedback about this tweet, Wang said, & lsquo; & lsquo; China wants to provide the necessary support and help India in the fight against the virus. If India makes a specific demand, we will provide help to the best of our ability. & Rsquo; & rsquo; On the question of increasing the price of medical supplies sent by Chinese manufacturers to India, Wang said, “lsquo; & lsquo; India is ready to buy medical supplies from China, I understand it is a commercial activity. & Rsquo; & rsquo;

& nbsp;

Asked if the Quad Group countries are not helping India, Wang said, & lsquo; & lsquo; countries should work together on this issue. & Rsquo; & rsquo; Wang declined to comment on the Sichuan Airlines’ decision to postpone the cargo flight to India. The letter issued by the marketing agent of Sichuan Chuanhang Logistics Corporation Limited, part of Sichuan Airlines, states that the airline is postponing its cargo service on six routes, including Xi’an-Delhi.

& nbsp;

News agency & lsquo; PTI & rsquo; Has seen the letter issued by the company in this regard. Accordingly, the company said, “lsquo; & lsquo; this decision has been taken in view of the sudden change in the state of the epidemic (India) and to reduce the cases of infections coming from outside.” So it has been decided to postpone flights for the next 15 days. & Rsquo; & rsquo;

& nbsp;

The letter states, the & lsquo; & lsquo; Indian route has always been the main strategic route of Sichuan Airlines. This postponement will cause heavy losses to our company. We apologize for this unchanged situation. & Rsquo; & rsquo; According to the letter, the company will review the decision in the next 15 days. The postponement of cargo flights is a surprise to agents and consignees who are trying to buy oxygen concentrators from China.

& nbsp;

There are also complaints that sugar producers have increased the price of oxygen related equipment by 35 to 40 percent. Freight charges have also been increased by about 20 percent. Siddharth Sinha of Sino Global Logistics, a consignment company in Shanghai, called the news agency & lsquo; & lsquo; PTI & rsquo; Told that the Sichuan Airlines decision would impede businessmen from both countries to rapidly purchase oxygen concentrators and ship them to India.

& nbsp;

He said that now it will be more challenging to send these devices and they will have to be sent by various airlines through Singapore and other countries which will delay the supply of these much-needed equipment. Sinha said that the postponement of flights citing the status of Kovid-19 in India is surprising as no crew members going to India are diverted and only members of the same crew bring the aircraft back.

China’s ambassador to India Sun Weidong said in a tweet that his country supports India in tackling the Kovid-19 epidemic. He said in the tweet, & lsquo; & lsquo; We will inspire Chinese companies to cooperate in the supply of medical goods to India. & Rsquo; & rsquo;
