EU Calls For Investigation Into Covid Origins

EU Calls For Unfettered Investigation Into Origins Of COVID-19

European Union leaders on Thursday called for an unfettered investigation into the origins of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which they said is necessary to draw the right lessons from the pandemic.

Addressing a news conference in Brussels, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said:

“There is this horrible pandemic, a global pandemic. We have to know where did it come from in order to draw the right lessons and to develop the right tools to make sure that this will never happen again.

“And therefore the investigators need complete access to whatever is necessary to really find the source of this pandemic and, depending of that, we have to draw conclusions.”

Charles Michel, the head of the European Council, said, “The world has the right to know exactly what happened in order to be able to learn the lessons.”

Michel also said that, in its dealings with the Chinese regime, the EU “will defend ourselves against practices that pose security risks, distort the level playing field, or are incompatible with our values.”

“We continue to stand up to defend human rights and the rule of law in Xinjiang, Hong Kong, and elsewhere,” he said.
