On February 6, Ambassador Liu Xiaoming and his wife, Madam Hu Pinghua, invited the Duke of York and his family to the Ambassador’s official residence to celebrate the Chinese New Year.

The Duke of York first conveyed the Chinese New Year’s greetings and best wishes from Queen Elizabeth II to President Xi Jinping and the Chinese people, saying that the Queen was very concerned about China’s novel coronavirus epidemic, and that at the critical time of fighting coronavirus, she expressed sincere sympathy for Chinese people, and would pray for the speedy control and victory over the virus.

Ambassador Liu thanked Her Majesty the Queen for her sincere condolences and best wishes and promised to convey the message to President Xi Jinping. He updated the Duke on China’s epidemic prevention and control efforts. Since the outbreak, President Xi Jinping has attached great importance to the epidemic, holding meetings on many occasions and making a series of important instructions and deployments to ensure that the safety and health of those in China are the top priority for the government, said Ambassador Liu. The whole nation was mobilized to fight against the battle against the epidemic. Now, prevention and control work is being vigorously carried out and has achieved positive results, added the Ambassador who expressed confidence that with the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China, the unity of the Chinese people, and the broad support of the international community, including the UK, the battle against the outbreak can be won.
