The US and China harden their clash in the UN General Assembly

United Nations / The president of the United States, Donald Trump, and that of China, Xi Jinping, have hardened their clash on Tuesday in a UN General Assembly very marked by the coronavirus pandemic and by the tension between the two superpowers.

Trump, in a brief message of just seven minutes, has gone directly to Beijing, whom he has blamed for the appearance of the coronavirus and for allowing it to spread.

“The United Nations must hold China to account for its actions,” the US president said.

Xi, meanwhile, has made it clear that the coronavirus is everyone’s problem and that now the fundamental thing is cooperation.

“Any attempt to politicize or stigmatize this issue must be rejected,” he stressed.

The pandemic, health suggestion and the response to the economic crisis have been a constant in the speeches of this first day of the General Assembly, which after the difficulties to travel is held in a new virtual format with leaders intervening through messages in video.

Although the virus centers the debates, the clash between the US and China goes further and touches areas such as the economic, geopolitical and environmental.

According to the head of the UN, António Guterres, the gap between the two countries is so great that there is a risk of “a new Cold War”. (September 23, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
