China claims US reversal prevents UN vote on pandemic truce

China has said, it along with the US, supported a draft UNSC resolution confronting the COVID-19 pandemic on Thursday but Washington changed its mind a day later. A US diplomat refuted the comment, saying there was no agreement on the draft. Since March 23, the council has been trying to agree on a text that backs a call for a ceasefire in global conflicts so the world can focus on the pandemic.
