On Tuesday, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs criticized the politicization of the COVID-19 origin-tracing issue. The ministry states that doing so would not harm China’s image, but rather Beijing’s trustworthiness. This statement was made in reaction to remarks made by the United States ambassador to China.
US Ambassador to China, Nicholas Burns, stated on Monday that China must be more forthcoming about the origins of COVID-19. This is coming after reports that the pandemic was most likely caused by a laboratory leak in China. He also urged China to play a more active role in the World Health Organization. This comment was made after the United States Department of Energy assessed that a leak in a Chinese laboratory most likely triggered the epidemic (WHO).
According to Mao Ning, a spokeswoman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, China has always shared vital information and data with the international community in a timely manner and in a transparent and trustworthy manner. This has been done on a regular basis.
China, according to Mao, has made substantial contributions to global study into the origins of COVID-19. Mao asserts that China is the only country to consistently request the WHO team of international experts. These requests have always been to trace the virus’s beginnings.
Mao argued that the United States should address global problems and concerns about Fort Detrick and other military biological facilities. She claimed that politicizing the issue will not tarnish China’s reputation, but rather damage China’s trustworthiness.
Burns was rebuked by Mao for not doing more as an envoy to promote understanding and strengthen ties between the countries.
