BEIJING - China will continue deepening international cooperation on responding to COVID-19, the National Health Commission said Thursday.

China will support the Group of 20 (G20) to enhance information sharing, policy coordination and active cooperation, prepare for the G20 health ministers' meeting and cooperate on medicine and vaccine development, said Li Mingzhu, an official with the commission, at a press conference.

Our experts have made exchanges with their counterparts in over 100 countries and regions through more than 40 video conferences to share China's experience in fighting COVID-19.

China will also join hands with relevant parties to stop the disease from transmitting across borders and help countries with weak public health systems improve their response capabilities, Li said.

Further efforts will be made to intensify the building of health emergency networks through regional cooperation mechanisms between China and Japan, the Republic of Korea, and countries in Southeast Asia and Central and East Europe, Li said.

"Our experts have made exchanges with their counterparts in over 100 countries and regions through more than 40 video conferences to share China's experience in fighting COVID-19," Li said.

Recently, the Chinese government has donated US$20 million to the World Health Organization (WHO) to support it in carrying out international cooperation in fighting the pandemic.

China supports the WHO to play a leading role in the global fight against the disease, Li added.
