The United States insists that in the draft resolution or statement of the UN Security Council (SB) on COVID – it was directly stated that a new coronavirus appeared in the Chinese city of Wuhan, media reported.
According to NBC, citing four diplomats working in the world organization, the United States began to insist on “the source of the virus” when Estonia, the elected member of the UN Security Council, began preparing a council declaration .
In various draft versions and revisions of the document, representatives of the American administration tried to insert the phrase “outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID – 19) in Wuhan, Hubei Province in the People's Republic of China in November 2019 of the year”.
These demands have caused discontent from China.
“We are surprised at the US decision to use this opportunity to politicize the outbreak (of disease) and blame China, we strongly oppose it,” – transmits to RIA Novosti the statement of the PRC mission to the UN, which they distributed among diplomats of other countries.
Chinese diplomats, in turn, expect the Beijing Security Council document to describe Beijing’s successful efforts to resolve the crisis, NBC emphasizes. According to a diplomat participating in the UN Security Council talks, representatives of other countries are in favor of reaching a compromise.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump also called the rumors about the delivery of the coronavirus by the US military to China “dishonest.”
