SINGAPORE — Malaysia will be one of the priority recipients of China-made coronavirus vaccines currently under development, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Tuesday during a visit to Kuala Lumpur.
Both China and Malaysia “are of the view that the South China Sea should not be a ground for major power wrestling, teeming with warships,” Wang told reporters.
In July, Malaysia sent a letter to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres contending that China’s territorial claim in the South China Sea has “no basis under international law.”
The document also touched upon the code of conduct for the South China Sea being negotiated by China and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
Malaysia is part of Wang’s five-day tour through Southeast Asia, which also send him to Laos and Thailand.
