Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi while addressing press conference for the third session of National People's Conference asserted that while world will never be the same again, however, China will not stop moving forward. "COVID-19 has been an all around test on Chinese social system and governance capacity. China stood the test, displayed its national strengthand shown itself to be a responsible major country," said Chinese Foreign Minister.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on May 24 defended the country against global criticism over its handling of COVID-19 outbreak, saying pointing fingers at others will damage one's own reputation. "COVID-19 drives home once again that no country, no matter how strong it is, can insulate itself from a global challenge. The disaster wrecks havoc watching from an apparently safe distance and sitting idle will eventually backfire. Pointing fingers at others will only damaging one's own reputation. Self-conceit and blame shifting instead of helping any country solve this problem will only hurt other countries' legitimate rights and interests," he added.
