The U.S. Covid-19 Traceability Report has no definitive conclusions. Scholars: It is no good for Meiru to continue to entangle
China News Service, August 29. Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao reported on the 29th that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence of the United States recently released a non-confidential report on the traceability of the new crown virus. Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Ma Zhaoxu responded that China believes that this is An out-and-out political report, false report, without scientificity and credibility, has made solemn representations to the United States. However, interviewed scholars believe that because the US intelligence agencies are unable to draw a definitive conclusion on the origin of the virus, the Biden administration has realized that there is no “more benefit” in continuing to entangle on this issue, but it “will not give up this card.”
According to the report, according to the summary of the non-confidential report on the traceability of the new coronavirus released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on August 27, the US intelligence agency has determined that the virus is not “developed as a biological or chemical weapon.” Most institutions also believe that the virus does not come from genetic engineering; in addition, before the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, the Chinese side did not know the virus in advance.
Regarding the source of the virus, US intelligence agencies have different opinions. They believe that human beings naturally come into contact with infected animals and that the virus is related to the laboratory. “Both assumptions are reasonable.”
The interviewed scholars judged that because the US intelligence agencies were unable to draw a definitive conclusion on the origin of the virus, the confrontation on this topic “will turn the page.”
Wu Xinbo, director of the American Studies Center of Fudan University, judged in an interview with Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao that because the US intelligence agency’s investigation did not reach a conclusion, the Biden administration estimated that it would not continue to make a fuss about this issue. He said: “The United States will not give up this card, but it will not rush to the front.”
p > Li Mingjiang, an associate professor at the Rajaratnam Institute of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, also pointed out in an interview that Biden asked the intelligence department to conduct traceability investigations, to a certain extent, in response to the domestic hawks in the United States. Now the Biden team may have concluded that if they continue to struggle on this issue, there is “no more benefit.”
Li Mingjiang judged that the next stage of traceability investigation is expected to be depoliticized and return to scientific issues led by the WHO.
For the second phase of the traceability investigation, Wu Xinbo believes that China’s position is that the WHO’s investigation of China has ended, and the second phase should be an investigation of other countries, including the United States. China will also strive for more countries to support this proposition.
According to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on August 28, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Ma Zhaoxu said that the so-called report is a complete political report, false report, nothing. No scientificity and credibility. The United States also issued a statement, slandering and attacking China. The Chinese side expressed firm opposition and has lodged solemn representations with the US side.
