China has asked the US government to provide information on suspected biological laboratories based in Ukraine.

Last Friday, Russia asked the United Nations Security Council to organize an urgent meeting to discuss the issue of US biological laboratories in Ukraine.

The spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Zhao Lijian, declared that his country requests that information about the viruses stored in these buildings be made public, which he indicated are “dangerous according to the data collected in some reports, he commented.”

“US military biological programs in Ukraine may be just the tip of the iceberg. Under the guise of working together to reduce biosafety risks and protect global health, the United States controls 336 laboratories in 30 countries,” he stated.

The undersecretary of state for political affairs, Victoria Nuland, said on March 4 that she would not speak to Russia on the issue, focusing attention on the invasion of Ukraine.

Zhao Lijian recalled that the start of the war in Iraq was due to alleged weapons of mass destruction in the hands of Saddam Hussein. “Today, the United States does not want to talk about weapons in Ukraine.”

The Russian ambassador to the UN, Vasili Nebenzia, said that they will send a letter with their request about the laboratories to the ‘pro tempore’ presidency of the organization, held this month by the United Arab Emirates.
