On February 3, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs held a regular online press conference for the first time, and foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying answered questions from Chinese and foreign journalists online. Hua Chunying said that recently, affected by the epidemic, some citizens of Hubei, especially Wuhan, who are traveling abroad, have encountered some practical difficulties overseas. To this end, the Ministry of foreign affairs acted promptly, and in just two days, successfully coordinated and arranged four air charter flights to take 399 Chinese citizens who had voluntarily returned to Wuhan, once again demonstrating Chinas speed and Chinas feelings. We will continue to closely track the development of the situation and take necessary measures to help Chinese citizens stranded overseas, especially Wuhan citizens in Hubei Province, provide necessary assistance.
