China pleads with Europe on behalf of Africa

Together with 19 other countries, Zimbabwe and Equatorial Guinea will continue receiving COVID-19 vaccines from China.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said China has made commitments to making vaccines global public goods as it also supports enterprises to export COVID-19 vaccines to African nations that urgently need, recognize and have authorized the emergency use of Chinese vaccines.

China will continue to provide support and assistance within its capacity and in accordance with the needs of Africa. However, the aid is a clear manifestation of the China-Africa traditional friendship of many years.

While commenting further, Wenbin said; “Meanwhile, China welcomes and supports France and other European and American nations providing vaccines to help Africa fight the pandemic.”

When asked to comment on French President Emmanuel Macron’s remarks at the Munich Security Conference, Wenbin said that Europe and the United States should immediately provide enough COVID-19 vaccine doses to Africa, otherwise African countries may choose to purchase vaccines from China and Russia, with that “the strength of the West will be a concept and not a reality.”
