OREANDA-NEWS. The United States should provide the international community with information about the experiments being carried out in military biological laboratories in Ukraine and at Fort Detrick. These studies, unknown to the public, were recalled by the representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry Zhao Lijian, who is quoted by TASS.

The diplomat said: “We hope that the respective countries and the United States will take a responsible and open position to the public, that they will start cooperation with the World Health Organization and invite its experts to conduct scientific research to find the sources of the origin of the coronavirus in the United States ... Russia not so long ago re-asked the States about their military and biological activities at Fort Detrick, and in Ukraine. Other countries have also expressed similar concerns. ”

According to the Chinese diplomat, Washington has set up 16 biological laboratories just along the borders of Russia. Zhao Lijian stressed that the United States has repeatedly suspected of developing biological weapons in these territories. The Chinese politician recalled that the American side is politicizing the search for the source of the COVID-19 pandemic and interfering with cooperation between Beijing and the WHO.

This issue has already been raised earlier by Russia. On April 7, Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev said that Moscow has reason to believe that the United States is developing bioweapons in laboratories located on Russia's borders. According to him, such laboratories are called research centers for the fight against dangerous diseases.
