US President Donald Trump has once again blamed China for the global corona epidemic. He called for holding the country accountable. Tensions between the United States and China have increased again since Trump’s remarks on Tuesday at the United Nations General Assembly.
Chinese President Xi Jinping said in his speech that his country has no desire to join the Cold War with any country.
This year, the United Nations session is being held in New York virtually. World leaders have already recorded speeches. As a result, the geopolitical images or events appearing in the larger sessions of the United Nations are missing this time. Each member country is represented one by one in the House of Representatives. As a result, the scope of the war of words between one country and another becomes limited.
As usual, US President Donald Trump highlighted his success in his speech at the UN General Assembly, as well as sarcasm at opponents. “Because China has spread this epidemic to the world, we should demand answers from them,” he said.
Trump said the virus had initially prevented Beijing from traveling locally and infected the world while keeping international flights open. Even when they canceled flights inside the country and locked civilians inside their homes; Nevertheless, he criticized my travel ban in his country. ‘
The death toll from coronaviruses in the United States has already exceeded two million, the highest in the world. Trump is already under pressure in the upcoming US presidential election to combat the virus. He has repeatedly accused Beijing of withdrawing information. Trump claims that China could have prevented the spread of the virus if it had wanted the virus. However, Beijing has denied the US president’s statement.
Tensions are growing between the United States and China over trade and technology, and the persecution of Muslims in Hong Kong and Xinjiang.
In a recorded speech at the United Nations after Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping warned of “a clash of civilizations”. He said that Beijing would continue to try to resolve differences and disputes with other countries through negotiations.
Pointing to the United States, Xi Jinping said that no country has the right to influence global affairs, try to control the fate of others or only benefit for its own development.
Xi also announced plans to reduce China’s gas emissions by 2030 and to reduce carbon emissions by 2030.
