OWENDO, Oct. 9 (ChinaMil) -- Gabonese President Ali Bongo Ondimba boarded the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy's hospital ship Peace Ark that was paying a friendly visit to Gabon and spoke highly of the free medical services provided by the Peace Ark for the Gabonese people on October 7, 2017.

10月7日,加蓬总统邦戈登上正在加蓬进行友好访问的中国海军和平方舟医院船,以加蓬人民的名义高度赞誉医院船为加蓬民众提供的免费诊疗服务。

The president also said that the first visit paid by the Chinese hospital ship to Gabon is a concrete step to implement the consensus reached by the heads of China and Gabon on elevating the bilateral relationship to comprehensive partnership and bears witness to the deep friendship between the people of the two countries.

他称医院船首访加蓬,是落实加中两国元首达成的将两国关系提升为全面合作伙伴关系共识的实际举措,是加中两国人民深厚友谊的重要见证。

Chinese Ambassador to Gabon Hu Changchun, Commander Rear Admiral Guan Bailin and Political Commissar Senior Captain Jin Yi of the Chinese navy fleet accompanied Gabonese President Bongo to visit the Peace Ark hospital ship at the Port Owendo of Libreville on the morning of October 7.

7日上午11时20分许,加蓬总统邦戈抵达利伯维尔奥文多港码头,在中国驻加蓬大使胡长春、“和谐使命-2017”任务指挥员管柏林、政委金毅等陪同下参观和平方舟医院船。

"I'm very glad to board the hospital ship today, and what pleases me most is the satisfaction I see on the faces of Gabonese patients. It proves the fruitful work of the medical personnel onboard the ship," said President Bongo.

邦戈说:“对于今天的登船参观,我感到非常高兴。而最让我感到高兴的,是一路走来,看到加蓬的病患们脸上写着的满意,这是和平方舟全体官兵富有成效工作的真实体现。”

When speaking of the relationship between China and Gabon, Bongo said that he had a successful visit to China last year and hopes to further enhance the 40-plus-year-long friendship and cooperation between the two countries.

在谈到两国关系时,邦戈表示,去年成功对中国进行了国事访问,希望进一步加强加中两国40多年来的友谊和合作。

"China and Gabon are good friends. The traditional friendship between the two countries is profound. The visit by Peace Ark will tighten our friendly relation and mark a new starting point in their deep traditional friendship," he added.

他说“中国是加蓬的朋友,加蓬是中国的朋友,两国之间传统友谊深厚。和平方舟此次到访,进一步加强了两国友好关系,是传统友谊的又一个新起点。”

Bongo spoke highly of the advanced equipment and medical technologies of the hospital ship, saying that "the hospital ship Peace Ark has the same departments as a regular hospital and the professional medical team is very impressive. I hope the Chinese and Gabonese militaries will continue to hold exchanges and cooperation in medical service area."

邦戈对医院船的先进设备和医疗技术赞叹不已,他说:“和平方舟海上医院拥有与正常医院同等的所有科室,医务队伍的专业使我印象深刻。我希望未来加中两军能继续进行联合卫勤交流合作。”

Rear Admiral Guan Bailin said the first visit to Gabon by Peace Ark was an important practice of great significance in the military medical exchange and cooperation between the two militaries after the "Peaceful Angel" joint humanitarian medical aid exercise in 2009.

管柏林说,和平方舟首次访问加蓬,是继2009年中加“和平天使”人道主义医疗救援联合演习,两国军事医学交流合作的又一重要实践,意义深远重大。

During the visit, staff members onboard the Peace Ark held a series of activities with the Gabonese military and local medical staffs, including joint medical treatment, academic discussion, repair of medical equipment and other cultural activities, which further deepened their medical exchange and cooperation and consolidated their traditional friendship.

期间,和平方舟医务人员与加方军地医务人员密切配合,开展了联合诊疗、学术交流、医疗设备维修、文化联谊等一系列活动,加深了两军医学交流与合作,巩固了两国传统友谊。

The mission commander Rear Admiral Guan Bailin and others also visited President Bongo at the presidential residence on October 5. The Gabonese defense ministry held a grand ceremony of investiture on October 6, at which it conferred honorary medals to 11 Chinese officers and soldiers, including Guan, who had made outstanding contributions to the China-Gabon exchanges and cooperation.

任务指挥员管柏林一行5日前往总统府拜会了总统邦戈。加蓬国防部6日举行了隆重授勋仪式,向在加中交流合作中做出杰出贡献的管柏林等11名任务官兵授予荣誉勋章。
