Americans Should Focus On Measures To Counter The Pandemic Said Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Hua Chunying

The United States should come to its senses and reconsider its views on the current situation in the world, especially after the recent statements of American President Donald Trump, who compared the new coronavirus pandemic to an attack on the United States by terrorists. This was announced on Thursday by Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying.

"It is extremely annoying that the American side makes such statements, shifting responsibility for its problems to others. This is wrong, Americans should focus on measures to counter the pandemic," she stressed at a regular briefing, commenting on a question from a Western journalist about Trump's recent statements. I believe that the United States should come to its senses before it is too late. We insist that Washington stop putting its troubles on the shoulders of Beijing."

According to the diplomat, in a difficult epidemiological situation, the United States should refrain from confrontation with China and join forces with other States to fight the pandemic at home. "This is the only way we can defeat the virus," Hua Chunying explained.

She added that, despite the harsh statements of some US representatives, the Chinese authorities are still ready to help the American side in the fight against the coronavirus. The Foreign Ministry representative recalled that against the background of criticism from Washington, experts and officials from many other countries give an exceptionally high assessment of the actions of the Chinese leadership, which not only took active and effective steps to eliminate the epidemic on its territory but also provided support to many States.
