China slams selfish US over WHO

China yesterday accused the United States of "selfishness" after President Donald Trump said he would terminate the US relationship with the World Health Organization.

Washington and Beijing have clashed repeatedly on different topics and on Friday Trump said he would sever ties with the UN health body, which he had previously accused of being too lenient with China.

"The international community generally disagrees with such US acts of selfishness, evasion of responsibility, and undermining of international cooperation against the epidemic," said Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian.

The US has been the WHO's biggest contributor, but in April Trump suspended funding, accusing it of not doing enough to curb COVID-19's initial spread and of being too soft on China.
