China must be held accountable for “unleashing the coronavirus pandemic on the world,” said President Donald Trump of America Tuesday at the United Nations General Assembly (UN).
Trump used his speech to attack China’s handling of the pandemic.
President Xi Jinping of China, on the other hand, had a conciliatory tone in his pre-recorded message and called for improved cooperation between countries due to the pandemic.
According to Reuters, Trump accused China of allowing people in the early stages to leave the country “and ignite the world” while domestic flights were stopped. He also slammed the World Health Organization, saying it was virtually controlled by China.
“The Chinese government and the World Health Organization have falsely stated that there was no evidence of a transfer between people. Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease. The UN must hold China accountable for its actions. “
Trump also promised that a vaccine would be distributed.
“We will defeat the virus and we will end this pandemic.”
