The American president has many times laid the blame for the spread of coronavirus in the world on China. Now he did it at the UN General Assembly.
U.S. President Donald Trump during his speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, September 22, once again called for China to be held responsible for the emergence of a coronavirus pandemic.
The head of the White House blames China for the fact that in the early stages of the spread of Beijing has not banned international flights from its territory, thus allowing “infecting the world.
In addition to China, Trump was criticized by the World Health Organization.
“We will distribute the vaccine, defeat the virus, end the pandemic and usher in a new era of unprecedented prosperity, cooperation, and peace,” Trump said.
China has already responded to the allegations, calling them groundless.
Trump, however, urged the UN to focus on “real-world problems”.
“For the UN to be an effective organization, it must focus on real-world problems. These include terrorism, harassment of women, forced labor, drug trafficking, human trafficking, including for sexual exploitation, religious persecution, and ethnic cleansing of religious minorities,” he said.
Trump recalled the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan as well as participation in Middle East peace agreements.
“After decades of lack of progress, Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed a historic White House peace agreement,” the U.S. president recalled when he announced several other agreements.
In addition, the U.S. leader also said that the United States “breathed new life” into NATO.
Recall that the outbreak of a new coronavirus was recorded in late 2019 in China. Later it spread to most countries. The World Health Organization declared it a pandemic on March 11.
Trump has repeatedly stated that he has increasing anger against China because of the spread of coronavirus around the world, as the pandemic has caused enormous damage to the United States.
Trump has also repeatedly called COVID-19 the “Chinese virus” or ‘Wuhan virus”.
