Tunisian Minister of Health Samira Merai praised on Friday that Chinese medical mission is a "brilliant example" of the cooperation between Tunisia and China.
During a farewell ceremony to the 21st medical mission, Merai expressed her thanks to all the members of the mission, based at different sites in Tunisia since October 2014, who made devotion to help local people, especially those living in remote regions with lack of medical specialists.
She wished the two countries could go further in this field and search for more opportunities to boost bilateral cooperation.
Chinese Ambassador to Tunisia Bian Yanhua said the health cooperation between the two countries since 1974 has made an outstanding contribution to the bilateral relations.
Since 1974, China has sent 21 medical missions to Tunisia and over 860 Chinese medics and specialists have accomplished their services.
