The American leader demands that China participate in the investigation and have access to all necessary data and evidence to establish the circumstances of the appearance of the coronavirus.
US President Joe Biden is demanding that US intelligence redouble its efforts to investigate the causes of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This was reported in the White House.
On May 26, the American leader instructed the special services of his country to prepare a report and report to Congress on the results of the investigation within 90 days.
In addition, he instructed the national laboratories to facilitate the investigation, and the intelligence community to prepare a list of specific requests for the Chinese government.
“To date, the US intelligence community has united around two likely scenarios (the appearance of the coronavirus), but has not reached a final conclusion on this issue,” Biden said in a statement.
The US president also called on China to participate in a “ full, transparent, evidence-based international investigation and provide access to all necessary data and evidence.”
Recall that Biden’s predecessor, Donald Trump, and other Republicans insist that the cause of the pandemic was a leak from a virus laboratory in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
At the same time, after a visit to China, the delegation of the World Health Organization called this version unlikely.
