BEIJING, March 3 (Xinhua) -- The claim that China exports COVID-19 vaccines to expand geopolitical clout is narrow-minded, a spokesperson for the fourth session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference said Wednesday.

China has pledged to make vaccines global public goods, and has encouraged Chinese enterprises to cooperate with relevant countries in vaccine research, development and production, spokesperson Guo Weimin told a press conference in Beijing.

China has joined COVAX and is actively promoting the fair distribution of vaccines globally, Guo said, adding that as of the end of February, China has provided vaccine aid to 69 countries and two international organizations and exported vaccines to 28 countries.

China has advanced international cooperation on vaccines to fight the pandemic, showing its commitment to building a community with a shared future for mankind, Guo said.

As COVID-19 cases continue to rage globally, China is willing to work with other countries and shoulder its responsibility in protecting the safety and health of people around the world, Guo added.
