BEIJING, March 10 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) has played an active role in the global fight against COVID-19 while fully supporting domestic epidemic containment, a military spokesperson said Wednesday.

The Chinese military has provided COVID-19 vaccine aid for the militaries of over 30 countries, including Pakistan, Cambodia, Mongolia and Equatorial Guinea, said Wu Qian, spokesperson for the delegation of the People's Liberation Army and People's Armed Police Force attending the fifth session of the 13th National People's Congress.
