China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Zhao Lijian on Wednesday denounced the COVID-19 Accountability Act introduced by U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham that would grant U.S. President Donald Trump the authorization to “impose sanctions on China if China fails to cooperate and provide a full accounting of the events leading up to the outbreak of COVID-19.”

Zhao said that the legislation is immoral and is an effort to blame China for the spread of the coronavirus in the country.

China has always been transparent in its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and have worked closely with the World Health Organization (WHO), said Zhao. The world has seen China’s contribution in containing the global pandemic.

Zhao urged the U.S. administration to focus on protecting the safety of its own citizens and contribute more to global cooperation in controlling the virus.
