BEIJING (Reuters) – China said on Monday that U.S. Senator Rick Scott should provide evidence to support his allegation that Beijing is trying to slow down or sabotage the development of a COVID-19 vaccine by western countries.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comments during a daily briefing on Monday and responded to the Republican Senator's comments during an interview on BBC television.
Scott declined to provide details of the evidence when asked during the interview, but said that it came through the intelligence community.
