Winter will eventually pass, and spring is sure to come. Our university has received letters of condolence from friendly universities abroad since the outbreak of COVID-19. Friendly universities like Vladivostok State University of Economics and Service (VSUES), Belgorod State National Research University, Tunku Abdul Rahman University (UTAR), and Jeonju University of South Korea have all expressed their concern and solicitude to the teachers and students of our university.
Prof. Terentieva, rector of VSUES said in her letter, "Dezhou University has long been VSUES's most trustworthy partner. We are deeply concerned about the complex situation of the COVID-19 outbreak in China, and sincerely express our sympathy to all the teachers and students of Dezhou University. We believe that we can get through the difficult times through joint efforts!"
Prof. Kuchmistyy, vice-rector of Belgorod State University of Science and Technology, Russia, also expressed sincere condolences to the complex situation of the COVID-19 outbreak. He said: "Chinese people will overcome the difficulties and prevail over the epidemic." Meanwhile, BelSU will adopt modern distance education technology to teach students of the “International Economics and Trade” majors in the Sino-Russian cooperation project in China."
"We will try our best to help your university to win this war against coronavirus as soon as possible." said Prof. Lee Ho-In, president of Jeonju University in South Korea.
Lai Shunan, director of the Office of Community and International Relations at UTAR, Malaysia, wrote in his letter, "We believe that we will pull together in times of trouble, and win the war against the coronavirus with the joint efforts of the government, the international community, and people from all walks of life at home and abroad!"
"Though separated by a mountain, we'll share the same clouds and rain; And a bright moon belongs not to a single town." These greetings and encouragements from friendly universities abroad have brought us much comfort and confidence. When the disaster affected our common homeland--the global village, we understood more deeply the essence of the global community of shared future. We are all convinced that with our common efforts we win prevail over the pandemic.
