Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China Wang Wenbin says China is strongly against US allegations made at the 75th session of the UN General Assembly and believes the US has used the podium of the UN to disseminate groundless criticism against China, TASS reports.
“Unfortunately, the American side used the podium of the UN, ignoring the facts and making up lies, discredited and groundlessly slammed China due to reprehensible political goals. China is strongly against this,” he said.
In his speech at the 75th General Assembly of the United Nations yesterday, US President Donald Trump said the UN ‘must’ hold China liable for the emergence of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Trump began his speech by talking about ‘the China virus’ and almost entirely dedicated to criticism geared towards China.
