China urges US to stop politicizing COVID-19

The United States should stop politicizing the coronavirus pandemic, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin (pictured) said on Wednesday, condemning Washington for smearing and attacking China in an attempt to achieve its own interests.

In a statement that came following US President Donald Trump's speech at the general debate of the United Nation's 75th-anniversary assembly, Wang urged the US "to stop playing political games, cast aside its unilateral mentality and live up to its due responsibility to the world." The Trump administration should "cooperate with the international community rather than shun its responsibilities and blame others," he underscored.

On Tuesday, Trump claimed that the UN must hold China accountable for letting COVID-19 to spread across the world, adding he is "very angry" about Beijing's response to the pandemic.
