Isolated issues related to Chinese made medical supplies and materials sent to other countries to help in the battle against COVID-19 should not be interpreted in a politicized fashion, and China's goodwill to assist other nations is sincere, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Monday. 

In fact, China also received material aids that didn't meet qualified standards from other countries at the early stage of the COVID-19 outbreak, however China decided to put faith in and respect the goodwill sent by other nations.

Hua made the remarks during a routine press conference on Monday.

According to the spokesperson, there have been numerous countries proposing to purchase material supplies from the Chinese market, and Chinese firms are working around the clock accordingly to manufacture products in demand, with the goal of helping other countries to fight the pandemic and striving to ensure material supplies to assist in protecting the health and lives of people around the world. 

"Should isolated issues occur in the process, the Chinese side would act in a timely manner to offer reasonable solutions, and we are willing to keep in close contact with relevant departments over the matter," she said, noting that such matters should not be interpreted in a politicized fashion.
