ECNS App DownloadSpecial: Battle Against Novel CoronavirusThe COVID-19 origin-tracing was indeed tainted by politics, not by China, but by certain countries including the United States, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Thursday.
Spokesperson Zhao Lijian made the remarks in response to a question on an open letter by 24 scientists and researchers from Europe, the United States, Australia and Japan, which claimed that the WHO-China joint study was tainted by politics with no credible answers about how the pandemic began.
Noting that the open letter was issued just after the release of the WHO report on origin of the virus, and another open letter, written by almost the same group of people, was issued on March 4, which is before the release of the report, Zhao said that the timing revealed their intention of exerting pressure on the WHO and the expert team.
It is more than evident whether their purpose was to provide suggestions to the origin-tracing research in a scientific and professional manner, or to target a country with the presumption of guilt, Zhao said.
“They insist on politicizing the origin-tracing issue, undermining and disrupting cooperation between China and the WHO, attacking and smearing China, and openly challenging scientists independent and scientific research,” he said.
This will undermine the global origin-tracing cooperation and affect global pandemic-fighting efforts, he added.Related newsReport on global COVID-19 origin tracing stands test of history: Chinese expert2021-03-31Global study on COVID-19 origins finds lab origin extremely unlikely2021-03-31China, WHO joint research to boost global cooperation in COVID-19 origin tracing: spokesperson2021-03-31MorePhotoCanadas Ontario announces one-month lockdown as COVID-19 continues rampagingBeiDou directed seeders work in Xinjiangs cotton fieldsVerdant forest of metasequoia lights up Spring in JiangsuSpeed skating for Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics tested at National Speed Skating OvalNASA’s Mars helicopter carries a piece of Wright brothers’ plane for first flightChinese scientists discover neopterygian fish fossil 244 mln-year agoAquaculture floats at sea farm in Lianjiang, FujianIn pics: night life in WuhanPanda cub in Japan enjoys sunbath‘Dying town’ in Italy shrinks to one third of original sizeEagle carries wild pig into the airPoverty Alleviation: Chinas Experience and ContributionYulan magnolia flowers bloom on top of Huangshan MountainBlooming hydrangeas flowers attract visitors to NanjingNTU Singapore scientists develop plant communication deviceXiamen University holds gala evening to mark 100 yearsNew crack with lava appears at Icelandic Volcano130-ton selfie giant panda debuts in SW China13 Tibetan monks receive Buddhisms highest degreeNASA Ingenuity Mars Helicopter ready for first flightNewly-come bear cub makes friends with chimpanzee at Turkey’s zooEgypt to transport 22 mummies to new homeGiant panda Ai Bao enjoys afternoon leisure time in S KoreaScenery of Xiling Gorge amid the misty rainAmerican Museum of Natural History sees increasing number of visitorsBerlin to impose curfew from Easter amid rising COVID-19 concernsSunset scenery of Qinghai Lake picturesqueCOVID-19 vaccination underway in YunnanXiongan New Area under large-scale constructionHunan stages a Guochao show to promote traditional cultureJapanese stunt pilot draws a smile over TokyoBlue tears light up waters in XiamenThe Three Kingdoms exhibition held in ChengduSniffer dog trained to detect COVID-19 in human sweatGuangji Bridge in Guangdong: Free to connect and disconnectCherry blossom season arrives in Washington D.C.Most popular in 24h$(function () {$.ajaxSetup({cache: true});var tStr = new Date().getUTCHours()+_+ new Date().getUTCMinutes();$.ajax({type: “get”,dataType: “json”,url: “/part/6/ecns_rank24h.json?t=”+ tStr,success: function (status) {var str = “”;$.each(status,function(index,obj){obj.title = obj.title.replace(/'/g, ');str +=+obj[“title”]+;});$(“#rank24″).html(str);},error:function(status){}});});MoreTop newsChina breaks deep-sea sediment core retrieval record China, India in talks ahead of 11th round of military talks Global experts see COVID-19 lockdown in Wuhan last year as timely, wise step China issues guideline on easing market access in Hainan free trade port HKSAR chief executive to table local electoral legislation amendment bill to LegCo next weekMoreVideoDescendant of Flying Tigers rescuer recalls the pastNew explosive ordnance disposal tech debuts at training baseLINEMedia partners:Peoples Daily Online|Xinhuanet|China.org.cn|ChinaDaily.com.cn|CGTN|Globaltimes.cn|Chinaplus.cri.cn|Shine.cn|JSCHINA|
