18 Greeks Awarded for Contribution in Evacuating Chinese from Libya

China’s top political advisor Jia Qinglin presented an award on Wednesday to 18 Greeks who helped evacuate 13,185 Chinese nationals from war-plagued Libya in March.

Jia, chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, spoke highly of the Greek government, the provincial government of Crete in particular, for their timely approval of the evacuation of the Chinese nationals from turmoil-hit Libya via Crete.

He also thanked all Greek departments involved as well as the people of Crete for the help and convenience they offered during the evacuation, which he described as a “miracle.”

“Today’s Contribution Award to Sino-Greek Friendship is also a reflection of the Chinese people’s gratefulness to the Crete provincial government, as well as to the Greek government and the people,” he said.

Jia also said that he believed the friendship between the two countries will last forever.
