Pakistani Armed Forces Gift PPE to US Military As Gesture of Goodwill

ISLAMABAD – According to the Pakistani embassy, Pakistani Armed Forces have provided the US Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as a sign of good gesture in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
The PPE consignment arrived from Islamabad via a C-130 flight which landed on Wednesday afternoon at Andrews Air Force Base (AFB), Maryland.
The airport was attended by Pakistani Ambassador to US, Dr. Asad Majeed Khan, and senior Security Wing officers from the embassy David Helvey, Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs, and other US officials also attended.
Ambassador Khan in his remark on the occasion referred to the historic ties between the people of two countries and their armed forces. He said both countries’ security forces had fought together in the global war on terrorism and were working together to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
This, the Pakistani envoy said, was a manifestation of the longstanding and strong cooperation between the two countries’ armed forces, particularly in dealing with the natural calamity, as both Pakistan and the US remain closely involved in the battle against COVID-19, he added.
The hardware was sent to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for forward delivery to the US Army.
