The China’s Foreign Ministry disclosed this development on Wednesday, CNN reports.
The situation in Afghanistan which has occurred as a result of the recent takeover of the Taliban in Afghanistan has prompted the move of the Asian country.
According to the spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry Hua Chunyin, the decision was announced during the first meeting of the foreign ministers of Afghanistan’s neighboring countries and would be “for emergency use to the Afghan people.”
Considering the health hazards around the takeover of the Taliban, the Chinese Government has also deemed it fit to care for the people especially at this crucial period. One of the ways they are doing this is a donation of 3 million vaccine doses to Afghanistan in the first batch,
This was disclosed by Chinese state news agency Xinhua Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, even though the date for the supply of the vaccines has not been revealed.
Going memory lane, the Chinese leaders promised that China would share its coronavirus vaccines with the world, especially with lower income countries, and Afghanistan.
