"China will continue to resolutely support the Pacific Island countries in their fight against Covid-19," said Zheng, adding that China will expand exchanges with these countries in various areas after the pandemic.
 
Expressing their appreciation of China's assistance, representatives from the Pacific Island countries said they would support the leading role of the World Health Organisation in global battle against the pandemic.
 
They also voiced their resolute opposition to the practice of politicising, stigmatising and labelling the virus, reiterated their firm support of the one-China principle, and hoped their comprehensive strategic partnership with China will be elevated to a new height.
