  3. What are you talking about. There were no 'united front' in this telecom-meeting. the US wanted for Saudis to stop pumping oil like crazy, Russia wanted to lift sanctions in humanitarian sectors from Iran and others, EU nations wanted more support from the EU. what 'united front'? no one agreed on anything, all nations are basically on their own now. Stop spreading fake news.

  4. G20 Shd make China responsible for this Pandemic and make them pay for the damages done.They shd also besr all cost of death sick lost of economical and loss of jobs.G20 shd be firm dnt take.China lightly they are crook of the worst kind in this Century's. G20 UNSC shd call for urgent sitting to deliberate this Matter.

  5. But will ignore where it came from. How weak leaders of this world are.
    Oh thanks china for your denial of this virus thag has killed thousands

  6. We need to thanks China for all of these. I wanna say THANK YOU CHINA FOR ALL OF YOUR HARDWORK =) Now the world will never be the same.

  7. All these G 20 political leaders are still stupid enough to let communist RedChina Xi Jinping to spread Wuhan virus all over the world.All these g20 greedy leaders are kneeling down to begging bloody smelly China yen.

  8. are they seriously praising china again???
    this is al the CCP's fault
    instead of paying for supplies for china
    force them to make it free
    they are creating a problem and selling a solution

  9. In my opinion this is the most successful undercover, biological attach in history perpetrated by the CCP on the rest of the world.

  10. I think China is actually a poor country bcoz it cannot eat healthy food but Wild animals. Spreading Corona by eating shit is the machinations of Commie China.

  11. Only DU30 has pure heart to h elp his people ! He is welling to sacrifice his own life and presidency for his love of all his people "! Doing everything "!
    A true leader of the land "!

  12. The Korean president Moon is very responsible president, Swift actions made the conoravirus got control. If every country have score in the examination of fighting conoravirus, we can give Korean 90. In contrast, most countries can not even past 60. However i still think there will be dark future waiting for president Moon consider Korean president is most dangerous job in the world

  13. Well planned by China to destroy world economy and it's Rivals. Chinese played very well and now they are showing as they are innocent.

  14. maybe G20 can ask China politely that the NEXT time they spot a virus in the wild – TELL EVERY-FUCKING-BODY!!!!
