US-China tensions increases at UN General Assembly

The Show Time / Vee D Ess

Heated exchange of words rose tension between China and USA with both presidents blaming eachother Trump blaming China for the spread of virus and China blaming USA for their actions to dominate global affairs at the UN General Assembly. This year the General Assembly took place virtually with each leader's pre-recorded speech due to that each country was represented by a single delegate and due to short period of time other countries didn't have much time to rebut other nations. Donald Trump said that China should be held accountable for the pandemic. In the early days of the virus China locked down localised citizens in their homes, stopped domestic flights and local travel but China allowed International flights to leave form the country and spreed virus all around the world. He said they also condemned his travel ban on their country. Chinese President Xi Jinping said his country has no intentions to start a cold war with any country. China says all the attacks from Trump are just an unfounded distraction as USA comes near elections. "We will continue to narrow differences and resolve issues through dialogues and negotiations. We will not seek to develop only ourselves or engage in zero sum game," he said. He attacked USA by saying no country has the right to dominate global affairs, control the destiny of others, or keep advantages in development all to itself .
