Chancellor receives the Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to thank him for the donation of medical supplies and to strengthen the exchange between both countries
At the meeting, where Senators Francisco Chahuan and Ivan Moreira also participated as representatives of the Inter-Parliamentary Committee between Chile and the United Arab Emirates, it was agreed to strengthen bilateral exchange in economic, social and cultural matters.
"The United Arab Emirates has sent a plane to Chile bringing a major donation of medical and health supplies to help combat the coronavirus. This is an important partner of ours in the Middle East; it's a place of purchase and distribution of products, it has many ports, it has a large air fleet and we also have a very close relationship," noted Minister Ribera.
Ambassador Abdelrazaq Mohamed Hadi Ali Alawadhi highlighted that the donation is a demonstration of the good relations between both nations. "Chile and the UAE are countries that have a lot of mutual trust," he said, adding the importance of increasing commercial exchange, as well as opportunities for the private sector.
The UAE's donation to Chile, valued at 500 million pesos, consisted of gloves, masks, shoe covers, sanitizers, isolation suits, disinfectant wipes and tests.
