Ambassador Harry Harris of the United States in Seoul expressed gratitude to the Korean people and government for the two million face masks Korea sent to the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency.
"The U.S.-ROK alliance and friendship are as vital and iron-clad today as it was 70 years ago," Harris said in a tweeter message.
According to the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) on May 10, the Korean government provided the masks to the U.S. in a gesture to “support our blood-forged ally.”
The U.S. Forces came to Korea in the fall of 1950 to rescue its battered ally by North Korean aggressors supported by the then Communist Soviet Union and Mao Tse-tung-led Red China.
President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump spoke over the phone on March 24 and discussed the need for a joint response to control the Coronavirus epidemic, a MOFA official said.
The masks were sent on a U.S. cargo plane that left Korea early on the morning of May 3.
