Moscow/Sputnik: A batch of the Chinese COVID-19 vaccines has been handed over to Afghanistan during an official ceremony in Kabul, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday.

The handover ceremony was held at the presidential palace on Saturday and was attended by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Acting Health Minister Wahid Majrooh along with other senior officials from Afghanistan and China.

"Vaccine is a gift of life and we thank China for its help," Ghani said, as quoted by the media outlet.

The first shipment of Sinopharm vaccines donated by the Chinese government arrived in Kabul on Thursday.
