Chinese State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China and the Philippines should maintain their friendship, remove disruptions, deepen cooperation, and jointly open up a better future for bilateral relations.
Facts have proved that Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s strategic decision to improve relations with China is in line with the fundamental interests of the Philippine people,” said Wang.
Noting the friendly exchanges between the two countries have lasted for more than 1,000 years, he said China guarantees Philippine Covid-19 vaccine needs.
He said China will also cooperate on specific drugs and public health capacity-building until the virus is defeated.
Wang said China will continue to open the door to more Philippine agricultural products and improve investment to help accelerate its industrialisation and modernisation process and enhance its development capabilities. — Xinhua
