Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Wednesday called on China and Central Asian countries to explore a new type of regional cooperation with their own characteristics and build a community with a shared future between China and Central Asia.

Wang made the remarks at the second China plus Central Asia (C+C5) foreign ministers' meeting in Xi'an, capital city of northwest China's Shaanxi Province.

He said China is willing to work with relevant parties to continuously improve the epidemic prevention and control mechanism and conduct telemedicine cooperation to improve public health capacity.

China is willing to provide Central Asian countries with a new round of vaccine aid and enhance the R&D and production of COVID-19 vaccines, Wang added.

He also called on China and Central Asia to enhance cooperation in modern agriculture and build a comprehensive agricultural science and technology demonstration park.

Wang stressed the sharing of advanced technology and equipment to help countries in the region push forward the industrial modernization process and cooperation in high-tech fields, including 5G and AI.

"We should make full use of the geographical advantage to ensure the smooth running of China-Europe freight train and China-Kyrgyzstan-Uzbekistan railway, and speed up the construction of transnational railways," Wang noted.

He also called for the establishment of a green channel for goods to guarantee the safety and stability of the regional industrial and supply chains.
