The US Secretary of State stressed that if the Chinese government had acted more quickly, it would have been possible to control the spread of the coronavirus.
“We continue to urge the Chinese government to provide samples and allow Westerners to inspect suspicious laboratories,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox Business. We still need information not only to investigate this particular crisis, but also to take all possible steps to reduce the risk of the spread of coronavirus-like viruses.
He added: “We know that China was aware of this crisis at least since December last year and it did not act quickly enough, and the World Health Organization failed to announce the pandemic on China's orders. These are just some of the goal setting shareware that you can use.
Pompeo believes that the Beijing government was obliged to be clear with the whole world, but it tried hard to hide the severity of the coronavirus and killed thousands of people.
“We saw what they did to American journalists,” he said. We saw what they did with the doctors who warned that there was a problem. We have witnessed this kind of behavior and action. They hide and then provide incorrect information.
“To be a reliable partner, you have to be transparent and do the exact opposite of China,” Pompeo said. They are doing things that authoritarian governments do, and they are not only destroying human lives, they are also a threat to the American people.
“If the World Health Organization does the same, it would be unacceptable to give hundreds of millions of dollars in funding to the organization,” Pompeo said of the World Health Organization. As a result, the Washington administration is working to establish its own agency to handle international health care. We know how to run international health organizations, and we are determined to find the right path because we can and will always be at the forefront of global health policy and save the lives of people around the world. The World Health Organization failed in its mission.
In a message to Haiku Moss, his German counterpart also denied criticism of Washington for cutting off funding to the World Health Organization.
“Our main priority is to protect people's lives, not foolish politics,” he said.
The US Secretary of State said that the international community needs active global institutions, not incapacitated bureaucratic institutions to bow down to the Chinese Communist Party against human life.
Pompeo added: “Hope we hope for your help in this battle for freedom of the eye.”
