China has not yet issued visas to WHO experts due to the specifics of official procedures.

The Chinese authorities have not yet issued visas to the members of the World Health Organization (WHO) delegation due to official procedures governing the arrival of people from abroad in the country during the pandemic. This was stated on Wednesday by Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying.

"In order for WHO experts to work successfully in  China, they need to go through formalities in accordance with established procedures,   " she said on  regular briefing.

According to the diplomat, the Chinese authorities maintain constant contacts with an international organization in order to resolve relevant issues. The representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs recalled that WHO experts had previously repeatedly visited China in order to identify the causes of the pandemic, and each time Beijing provided them with active support.

On January 5, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that the Chinese authorities had not yet authorized the arrival of an international scientific team of experts sent to clarify the circumstances of the origin of the coronavirus . He emphasized that he was extremely disappointed by this news.
