Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian stressed that these products are “important weapons” to save lives, not to create gaps in immunization or to promote manipulation.
The issue of vaccines is not about professions or values. He said, “It is not a tool to sow divisions.”
He stated that China will never use these materials for the purpose of expanding influence or global leadership, and will not guarantee services from other countries.
Our help has no geopolitical agenda or political overtones. “We will do what we can to help people breathe because every life counts, regardless of race or nationality,” Zhao said.
He also indicated that the Asian giant would support any effort aimed at equitable access to immunity in developing countries, including the release of patents.
The State Department spokesman responded in this way after US President Joe Biden announced yesterday that it would export 80 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines to other countries, but to regain “ leadership ” in the global battle against the epidemic and bypassing shipments from China and Russia.
