China protests US over Trump’s statements to UNGA

China protested to the United States over allegations of the coronavirus pandemic at the UN General Assembly, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“Unfortunately, contrary to the facts, the American side used the UN rostrum to fabricate rumors, baseless attacks and slander China for unseemly political goals. The Chinese side is expressing a strong protest, “RIA Novosti quotes a message from the Foreign Ministry.

President Donald Trump’s speech at the 75th session of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday was his shortest speech in the organization ever during his presidency.

Trump said the UN “must be an effective organization” and must “focus on the real problems in the world.” In addition, he said the UN should involve China for the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump has repeatedly accused China of spreading the coronavirus and withholding the facts about the epidemic. He blamed China for spreading the coronavirus “to the whole world.” In addition, the American leader spoke of growing anger at China as the coronavirus spreads. At the same time, Trump admitted that China deliberately infected the world with coronavirus.
