Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov reportedly said that the US has hundreds of military biological laboratories around the world, including nearly 30 in Ukraine alone, which pose a deadly threat to a large number of civilians.Russia will ask the states parties to the Biological Weapons Convention to review the matter and make efforts to make the US stop blocking the establishment of the verification mechanism of the Convention.Does China support Russia’s request for the review?Zhao Lijian noted Foreign Minister Lavrov’s remarks that biosecurity concerns the common interests of mankind, and the United States has the obligation to abide by the Biological Weapons Convention and clarify the concerns of the international community.As a matter of fact, the international community has long been seriously concerned about the United States’ biological military activities at home and abroad.This is not an American laboratory issue in Ukraine alone, nor is it a new issue arising out of the current situation.Zhao lijian said that China welcomes the international community’s joint assessment of the documents disclosed by Russia under the framework of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) and the United Nations, and also listens to the US side’s clarification in a fair and just manner.The international community should take this as an opportunity to restart negotiations on the establishment of a verification mechanism under the Convention.We once again urge the US to change its exclusive opposition to the establishment of a verification mechanism, which will help restore the international community’s confidence in the US’s compliance with its international obligations and improve global biosecurity.(CCTV reporter Shen Yang Kong Luyuan) Editor: Mu Qing Source: CCTV news client
