Trump asks UN to hold Beijing responsible for consequences of COVID-19 pandemic
US President Donald Trump lashed out against China today demanding that the UN should hold Beijing responsible for the consequences of unleashing the plague of COVID-19 on the world.
Speaking at the General Assembly’s high-level meeting in a pre-recorded address, he said, the Chinese government and the World Health Organization falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission. Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease.
He declared that the United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions. He accused Beijing of allowing the coronavirus to spread. China’s Permanent Representative Zhang Jun, before introducing the recorded speech of his country’s President Xi Jinping, hit back at Trump saying that a “political virus” must not be spread when there is a need for solidarity and cooperation
