Some countries outside the region are trying to stir up trouble and create tension in the region. This is the direct threat to the stability of the South China Sea, Wang said.
Speaking of the vaccine for COVID-19, Wang said the top priority is to promote its research and development. China has made a clear commitment that after the successful development of China's vaccine, it will become a global public product, and developing countries will be China's priority, said Wang.
