|Wang Yi: Anti-epidemic Cooperation Should Never Be Distracted by Blame Game, Tensions and Divisions Should Never Be Created by Politicization or Stigmatization|
State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended the BRICS Foreign Ministers' Extraordinary Conference on COVID-19 on April 28 in Beijing.
Wang Yi noted, as countries battle the disease in light of their own situations, China calls for mutual understanding and respect for these efforts, and sharing and learning from each other's experience. Fighting COVID-19 is like putting out fire. Every minute counts when life is at stake. The global community should never be distracted in its collaborative response by finger-pointing or the blame game, still less should we allow new tensions and divisions to be created as a result of politicization or stigmatization.
