BEIJING,
March 16 (Xinhua) — China supports early COVID-19 vaccination for UN
peacekeepers and will work with the UN Secretariat to make vaccines
donated by China available to the UN peacekeepers at an early date, a
foreign ministry spokesperson said here Tuesday.

Spokesperson
Zhao Lijian’s remarks came after China’s permanent representative to
the United Nations Zhang Jun on Monday notified UN Secretary-General
Antonio Guterres of China’s intention to donate 300,000 doses of
COVID-19 vaccines to UN peacekeepers, with priority given to the African
mission area.

This
is a concrete measure to fulfill China’s pledge to make vaccines global
public goods, Zhao said, adding that it has fully demonstrated China’s
support to the UN and multilateralism as well as its concern for the
health and safety of peacekeepers.

As
one of the champions of the safety and security issue under the “Action
for Peacekeeping” initiative of the UN secretary-general, China
attaches great importance to the safety and security of peacekeepers,
and supports early COVID-19 vaccination for UN peacekeepers to protect
their health and help them better perform their duties, he said.

“China
will work closely with the UN Secretariat to make vaccines donated by
China available to the UN peacekeepers at an early date,” said Zhao.
