Barnier’s connection to the alleged Chinese Covid 19 lab

The city has one of the world’s leading laboratories that was opened in 2019 following an agreement in 2004 between China and France. Acting as Minister of Foreign Affairs for then-President Jacque Chirac, the deal was agreed on by Mr Barnier. Before the cooperation collapsed at the time of its launching, but French firms just received minor roles. US President Donald Trump has labelled the laboratory as the source of the virus.

WHO emergencies chief Michael Ryan stated: “We are assured that this virus is natural in origin.”

Regardless of the assurances from the WHO, Mr Trump stated there was intelligence to confirm his statement, although he didn’t go far to publish the findings. On Thursday, Mr Trump said: “We’re going to see where it comes from.
“We have people looking at it very, very strongly. Scientific people, intelligence people, and others.
“We’re going to put it all together. I think we will have a very good answer eventually.
“And China might even tell us.”

Regardless of Mr Trump’s claim, China’s foreign ministry said once the pandemic is over, the country is prepared for a negotiation.
Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the Chinese foreign ministry, said: “The Chinese Communist Party is open, transparent & responsible in #COVID19 response.

“US experts were in China on WHO-China joint mission in late Jan.
“Why not ask US experts to locate when the virus first started in the US?
“American people need answers. The world also has the right to know.”
Her response came after Secretary of State; Mike Pompeo said China must be transparent over the virus’ origins.

He said: “The CCP needs to be transparent as the world seeks answers to COVID19 and its origins. We don’t know the history.
“We haven’t been able to get our team on the ground to do the work that it needs to do. China has a responsibility to cooperate.”
