The office said the province received protective clothing and goggles donated by Niigata when Heilongjiang was hit by the novel coronavirus outbreak. As the epidemic eases in China, the province decided to donate medical supplies to Niigata to support its fight against the virus.

Heilongjiang and Niigata established friendly relations in 1983.

So far, Heilongjiang has donated medical supplies to countries including Japan, Russia and the Republic of Korea.
