China is providing COVID-19 vaccines to 12 Latin American and Caribbean countries, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Sunday.

Last year marked the 60th anniversary of the establishment of China-Latin American diplomatic relations.

"China and Latin American and Caribbean countries have stood alongside and supported each other in COVID-19 response and economic recovery," he said. "Our cooperation best illustrates the saying, that 'a bosom friend afar brings a distant land near'."

"The COVID-19 pandemic has not hindered our cooperation. Instead, our people have grown closer and are bound by broader common interests," he said, adding China will collaborate more with Latin American and Caribbean countries.
