Beijing, May 8: The Chinese Foreign Ministry on Thursday appealed the United States to stop 'blaming' China for the pandemic, stressing that victory against the pandemic is only possible through international cooperation.
Sputnik quoted the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying saying that the US with more than 73,000 virus-related fatalities and more than 1.2 million cases detected so far has become the epicenter of the pandemic yet the Trump administration "accuses China of everything" related to the Coronavirus, from its alleged manufacture in a secret laboratory to covering up its spread. Chunying reiterated the need for international cooperation to control the pandemic.
"The United States needs to fight the disease together with China instead of confronting us, because only through the joint efforts of the international community can we defeat the Coronavirus infection," he said. The spokesman claimed that China has been transparent enough to share its experience of controlling the pandemic with the US and other countries. (UNI)
