WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump will inform the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday it “must hold China liable for their actions” associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
” The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization– which is practically managed by China– wrongly declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” Trump will say, according to excerpts launched ahead of shipment.
” Later, they incorrectly stated people without symptoms would not spread the disease … The United Nations should hold China accountable for their actions,” he will say.
Trump taped his speech on Monday at the White House for shipment remotely to the General Assembly, which assembled essentially this week.
The president assured to disperse a vaccine and stated: “We will defeat the virus, we will beat the virus, and we will end the pandemic” and go into a brand-new period of prosperity, cooperation and peace.
Trump, a regular critic of the United Nations, also said in the excerpts that if the UN is to be effective, it should concentrate on “the real problems of the world” like “terrorism, the oppression of ladies, required labor, drug trafficking, human and sex trafficking, religious persecution, and the ethnic cleaning of spiritual minorities.”
