UN should hold Beijing responsible for Coronavirus: Trump

China should be held responsible for coronavirus says Trump at UN general assembly

United Nations: U.S. President Donald Trump lashed out against China demanding that the United Nations should hold Beijing responsible for the consequences of unleashing the plague of Coronavirus 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.

Trump offered to share the anti-COVID-19 vaccines.Trump said his administration has “stood up to decades of China’s trade abuses”.

He attacked China on its environmental record contrasting that with that of his own country that is often under criticism.

Defending his decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement, he said US emissions have come down since he took the action.

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.
