China says Australia is asking for a COVID-19 investigation, it is just a political maneuvering


China's foreign ministry said on Thursday that Australia's call for an independent investigation into the coronavirus outbreak was political maneuvering and that the country would end its ideological bias.

Geng Shuang, spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry, also told reporters during a briefing that China does not have wet markets for wildlife, answering a question about the U.S. State secretary Pompeo's comments calling on China to close all of the country's wet wildlife markets.
