Liu Xiaoming, Chinese Ambassador to the United Kingdom, has called for the international communities to work together in the coronavirus pandemic and to put lives first.

Speaking at an Asia House event, Liu also denied China had downplayed the disease, saying China has notified the world about the outbreak without delay and built a "strong line of defense" for global public health.

In light of criticism against China lately, Liu said that "arrogance and insolence" will poison international cooperation and urging leaders to put lives above everything else.

Liu said politicize the virus and stigmatization will only undermine international cooperation and harm the interest of all mankind.
