  • "Both sides from China and Pakistan braved the cold, cleared the roads, made good prepartions for the delivery of the medical supplies at the Khunjerab Pass," Chinese embassy tweeted.

China delivered medical supplies to Pakistan on Friday through the Khunjerab Pass which is highest land port on Earth.

In a tweet, the Chinese embassy said both sides braved the cold and prepared for the medical supplies which will help combat coronavirus.

Earlier, China requested Pakistan to open the border for a day so that the supplies could be delivered. Under a border protocol agreement of 1985, the Khunjerab border crossing remains closed from the end of November to April.

The embassy also requested Pakistan to make due preparation before the delivery so that all materials could enter Pakistan smoothly, local media reported.

The neighbor has donated 200,000 ordinary face masks, 2,000 N-95 face masks, five ventilators, 2,000 testing kits and 2,000 medical protective clothes mainly used by doctors and paramedics.
