According to the agreement reached by the defense departments of China and Peru, the medical team established by the Health Department of the General Logistics Department (GLD) of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) left Beijing for Peru on November 17 to participate in the “Peace Angel 2010” Sino-Peru humanitarian medical rescue joint operation.
Qin Yinhe, deputy director of the GLD, attended the expedition ceremony for the medical team. It’s said that the contents of the “Peace Angel 2010” joint operation include exchanges, training, rescue exercise and medical service.
In recent years, the PLA had sent medical service troops to carry out exchanges and cooperation with foreign militaries for many times, reflecting the active efforts of the PLA in co-building a harmonious world and deepening the traditional friendship of China and its PLA with relevant countries and their militaries.
