The Chinese Foreign Ministry has slammed US plans to publish a report on the origin of coronavirus, accusing Washington of playing a “political game” and using intelligence to draw conclusions on a “difficult scientific question.”
The US decision to task its intelligence services with digging into the origins of coronavirus shows that the country is fixated more on blaming China rather than establishing the truth, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a regular press briefing in Beijing on Friday.
The origin of the virus is a difficult scientific question. And the United States is currently trying to let the intelligence services draw scientific conclusions.
“This only suggests that the US is not interested in finding out the truth, it does not want any scientific research, this is just a political game, an attempt to throw the blame on others and throw off their responsibility,” Zhao added.
