Zhang Jun, China’s ambassador to the United Nations, told reporters that the United States is spreading the political virus in the UN General Assembly session at a time when the international community is sincerely fighting COVID-19.
“I would like to emphasize that the statement of the United States is completely inconsistent with the normal environment of the General Assembly,” he said.
Earlier, in a speech to the UN General Assembly, Trump blamed Beijing for the spread of COVID-19 worldwide and slammed the virus, calling it the “China virus.”
Recalling a rally speech, Trump called on the world to take action on the “plague” that is spreading in China.
