China is ready to cooperate with Singapore in the development of medicines

5e3b6675a3101282064fd1fbThe politicization of the issue of the origin of the virus, the shifting of responsibility and the "transfer of arrows" harm international anti-epidemic cooperation, said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

China is ready to develop cooperation with Singapore in the field of research and development of medicines, as well as in the study of viruses. This was stated by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi during a meeting in Singapore with Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Heng Swee Keith.

"China is ready to develop cooperation with the Singaporean side in the field of research and development of medicines, the study of viruses and other aspects, as well as together to resist "vaccine nationalism" in order to contribute to the fight against the epidemic in the region," Wang Yi was quoted as saying on Tuesday by the website of the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

As the head of the Chinese foreign Ministry pointed out, "the virus does not distinguish between national borders and races, only the unity of all mankind can finally defeat the pandemic." He noted that the politicization of the issue of the origin of the virus, the shifting of responsibility and the "transfer of arrows" harm international anti-epidemic cooperation."

The Chinese Foreign Minister also held a meeting with his Singaporean counterpart Vivian Balakrishnan.

Wang Yi will pay official visits to Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore and the Republic of Korea from September 10 to 15, TASS writes.
