Following President Donald Trump's decision to halt funding to the World Health Organization over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, China has responded demanding that the US should fulfill its obligations.

China reacted to the President's decision saying it was “seriously concerned" about the suspension of the globalist body.

Trump on Wednesday demanded the WHO answers for failing to warn the world about the coronavirus while pandering to China and political correctness.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a regular press briefing:

“China is seriously concerned about the U.S. announcement to suspend funding for the World Health Organization,” he said, according to AFP.

“The current global epidemic situation is grim. It is at a critical moment. This U.S. decision will weaken the WHO’s capacities and undermine international cooperation against the epidemic.”

“We urge the United States to earnestly fulfill their responsibilities and obligations, and support the WHO-led international action against the epidemic,” Zhao added.

The WHO received over $400 million last year alone from the United States, making them its biggest funder.

Zhao said Beijing had provided $20 million to the WHO, but remained resistant to making up the shortfall.

“China has always supported the leading role played by the WHO in the international fight against the epidemic… China will look into the relevant issues depending on the needs of the situation,” he said.

Propaganda

Last month, Lijian suggested the coronavirus 'might' have been brought to China by members of the U.S military. This claim may have been part of a Chinese disinformation campaign against the US.

Lijian falsely claimed on Twitter:

“When did patient zero begin in the US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!”

Additionally, Chinese state media also used Facebook and Instagram to push 'political ads' blaming President Donald Trump for the pandemic.

The disinformation seems to be an attempt to shift the blame away from China.

Facebook responded to the campaign saying it was an “error” that the ads were not classified as political, and is correcting them.

The Chinese media was posting undisclosed political ads in an attempt to cover-up China's role in the coronavirus pandemic while blaming Trump, the Telegraph reported.
