TEHRAN, March 23 (Xinhua) -- Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Hossein Baqeri on Monday praised China for providing Iran with medical assistance in the battle against COVID-19.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has put humanity in a serious dilemma to test the commitment of the nations and governments to the moral principles, Baqeri was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

"On behalf of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran, I express gratitude to the Chinese people, government and the Armed Forces for their goodwill, benevolence and health and medical aids," the Iranian top commander was quoted as saying.

Besides, a team comprising five experts from the Red Cross Society of China arrived in Tehran on Feb. 29. Enditem
