New Delhi: Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday appealed to political parties around the world not to politicize the global pandemic or put any geographical stamp on it, amid growing demand for an independent investigation into the origins of the coronavirus.
The first case of corona infection was reported at the end of 2019 in Wuhan, China.
Xi Jinping on Coronavirus:
Jinping also appealed to jointly oppose disrupting technology while addressing the country's ruling Communist Party of China and world political party summits via video link. The origin of covid-19 remains a matter of wide debate. Some scientists and leaders say that the infection of this deadly virus probably spread from a laboratory.
"We must adopt a science-based approach to deal with covid-19 and support solidarity and cooperation, so that the 'vaccination gap' is closed," Jinping said at a program organized a few days after the CPC's centenary celebrations on July 1.
Don't do politics on Corona: Xi Jinping
The official news agency Xinhua quoted Jinping as saying that China will make every effort to support international cooperation against covid-19. He described terrorism as the common enemy of humanity and underlined the need to achieve security and stability through cooperation.
"We need to encourage all countries to increase cooperation for development and make sure that development benefits everyone," Jinping said. Any political gimmick aimed at curtailment will not be supported and will prove to be futile. He said that 'development is not the prerogative of a few countries, but the right of all countries'.
Responding to criticism of the CPC for its authoritarian rule in China, Jinping said whether a country is democratic or not should be judged not by a handful of people, but by the people at large. He said that there are different avenues to ensure the welfare of the people and people of all countries have the right to choose their own development path and institutional model.
