BEIJING, March 4 (Xinhua) -- China's anti-epidemic cooperation with the rest of the world does not pursue geopolitical goals or attach any political strings, but is to protect the lives and health of more people, a spokesperson said Thursday.

China has been promoting vaccines as a global public good and improving its accessibility and affordability in developing countries, said Zhang Yesui, spokesperson for the fourth session of the 13th National People's Congress, at a press conference.

It requires concerted efforts from the global community to promote the equitable distribution and use of vaccines and ensure that safe and effective vaccines are available and affordable to developing countries, Zhang said.

China has provided vaccine assistance to over 60 countries, and promised to provide 10 million doses of domestic vaccine to the COVAX initiative to meet the urgent needs of developing countries.

Currently, over 40 countries have imported or are in talks to import vaccines from China, most of which are developing countries, he said.
