Ministry of Foreign Affairs approves 300 million people in the U.S. for stockpiling 2.6 billion doses of vaccine.
On May 14, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying presided over a regular press conference. According to reports, a reporter asked: On the 13th, a U.S. State Department spokesperson condemned certain countries for using life-saving medical assistance to advance their narrow political agenda. The media interpreted this to be aimed at China. The U.S. claims that Taiwan’s relations with Honduras and other regional countries have promoted democratic values and sustainable development in the southern hemisphere. The United States and Hong stand together to cope with the challenge. What is the spokesperson’s response to this?
Hua Chunying said that I have also read the words of the spokesperson of the U.S. State Department. It seems that the United States is not only on the issue of human rights but also on vaccines. The United States has repeatedly expressed its commitment to enhancing global democratic values. One time it said who to stand with; another time, it said who to stand with. But I don’t know if it can ask the United States to announce that the United States has included it in every country so far. How many vaccines each of the allies has provided. The United States has a population of 330 million, accounting for 4% of the world’s total population. Still, it has snapped up about 2.6 billion doses of vaccines, accounting for a quarter of the whole global vaccines. While countries worldwide are trying to obtain much-needed vaccines, hundreds of millions of vaccines are idling in warehouses in the United States. U.S. officials have also repeatedly emphasized that the United States should be the first and the United States should be given priority on vaccine distribution. The export of vaccine raw materials should be restricted. “On the issue of the epidemic and vaccines, the United States has concealed its inability to respond internally, slammed the blame outside, diverted its attention, and used the epidemic to engage in political manipulation. At the critical moment of the world’s fight against the epidemic, the United States will either do nothing, fall into trouble, or write a bad check, or even Some time ago, I didn’t even bother to write a bad review. I talked about America first. Recently, the U.S. has just made some gestures and has not taken any action yet. It has already assumed the appearance of a savior again. If the United States cares about the lives and health of people in other countries, if it genuinely stands with them, and if it genuinely believes in what they say about democracy and human rights, they should be consistent with their words and deeds.
Hua Chunying pointed out that China was the first to put forward and actively implement its commitment to make vaccines a global public product. With its vast population base and tight vaccine supply, China has provided anti-vaccines to more than 160 countries and international organizations. The epidemic material assistance provides urgently needed vaccines to more than 100 countries and international organizations in different ways and is carrying out technology transfer and production cooperation with more than ten developing countries such as Egypt and the United Arab Emirates. The WHO has approved Sinopharm Group’s vaccine for emergency use, and it is actively advancing the supply of vaccines like the new crown vaccine implementation plan. China will continue to contribute to the availability and affordability of vaccines in developing countries. We also hope that the United States can abandon political manipulation of vaccines and do more to help and support international anti-epidemic cooperation.
