Eleven tons of medical supplies donated by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Greece arrived on Thursday at the Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, via a special Etihad Airways flight.
The supplies included among other things: special coveralls for medical protection, medical gloves and sanitisers.
They will immediately become available to hospitals around the country and help the fight against coronavirus (COVID-19).
”The assistance comes at the initiative of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi & Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and His Highness Sheikh Tahnoon Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, National Security Advisor of the UAE. It confirms the close relationship of the UAE with Greece. A relationship that began as economic cooperation, but thanks to the trust that was developed, it evolved into a strong bond,” the Greek government press release stated.
Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis personally thanked His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi & Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and His Highness Sheikh Tahnoon Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, National Security Advisor of UAE.
He emphasised that “the friendship and trust we share with the United Arab Emirates are dear, and especially during these difficult times the solidarity of our allies is evident—also shown through the delivery of valuable medical supplies today.”
