Chinese President Xi Jinping and World Health Organisation (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus have publicly backed the idea of a detailed investigation into the coronavirus pandemic – but not until the "appropriate moment".

China's leader told the World Health Assembly on Monday he supports a WHO-led "comprehensive review" into the Covid-19 pandemic after it is "brought under control".

The WHO director general also bowed to calls from member states for an investigation into the pandemic and said it would take place at the "earliest appropriate moment".

However, it's not clear what such an investigation would look like and if it would match up with demands from WHO member states.

The key item on the agenda of the two-day summit is the draft resolution proposed by New Zealand, Australia, the UK and EU member states, among several other countries, into the source of the virus.

The Australian-led push was first proposed last month but China said it was "firmly opposed" to the idea at the time.

While the motion doesn't specifically mention China, it had been met with anger by officials and led to economic repercussions for Australia.

The motion calls for the WHO leader to work with the UN and other organisations to "identify the zoonotic source of the virus and the route of introduction to the human population, including the possible role of intermediate hosts".

The aim is to "reduce the risk of similar events as well as to provide guidance on how to prevent SARS-COV2 infection in animals and humans and prevent the establishment of new zoonotic reservoirs, as well as to reduce further risks of emergence and transmission of zoonotic diseases".

The damage control is hillarius after the utter failure of the previous efforts of a few individuals to try to push for a anti Chinese politial campaign at the UN.

China backtracked, they lie. China only accepted "it" conditionally, they lie. China was against "it", they lie. China is angered about "it", they lie. "But" China retaliated against the earlier smearing campaign so somehow China must be angry about the unrelated motion China backed, they struggle to spin. But the international backed motion contains "aspects" of their farcial one so in a sense its not a totaly failure, they insist to play down their loss. China is "fooling" the world by supporting a motion that not just reflects Chinas position but also the one of the majority of the world, they just nonsensically blubber.
Some decided to just drop the ball and simply proclaim victory over a loss in a last fringe attempt to milk the last moments of their failed campaign for some anti-Chinese sentiment in the headlines.

They are just lying through their teeth now to safe face and still try to shift it somehow against China
