Virus Talk Mooted

Some international relations scholars and diplomats have suggested that responsible nations can organise a video conference to bring together experts under the 43-member ‘Australia Group’ to discuss the security dimensions the Chinese virus and the possibility of it being an outcome of biological warfare activity. The Group could also explore options of seeking COVID-19 related scientific data from China and the U.S. for universal research efforts and to develop a vaccine soonest. With WHO under the command of a Beijing-influenced personality and any discussion on the world-threatening pandemic being effectively blocked by China at the UNSC, this could be one way of excluding China from the discussion and yet coming up with a viable solution to the virus.

The Australia Group does not include China and therefore it may be easier for countries like the U.S., India and Australia to be little more open about flagging China’s culpability in spreading the virus.
