China says virus pushing US ties to brink of ‘Cold War’

admin no comments

first_imgMore European nations meanwhile moved to ease their lockdowns, with virus trends improving and summer nearing. They loosened restrictions that have kept restaurants, bars and hotels shuttered, devastating tourism, and they moved toward reopening more schools.Globally, more than 5.3 million people have been infected by the virus, which most scientists believe jumped from animals to humans — possibly late last year at a market in the central Chinese city of Wuhan.US President Donald Trump has accused Beijing of a lack of transparency over the outbreak, suggesting the virus may have leaked from a top-security Chinese laboratory.Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Sunday that Washington seemed infected by a “political virus” but that Beijing would nevertheless be open to an international effort to find the coronavirus source. China said Sunday that its relations with the United States were “on the brink of a new Cold War,” fuelled partly by tensions over the coronavirus pandemic that has killed nearly 350,000 people worldwide and pitched the global economy into a massive downturn. Fresh tensions between Beijing and Washington emerged as virus restrictions continued to shape and remake lives around the world, and in very different ways. They muted celebrations by Muslims of the end of Islam’s holy fasting month of Ramadan; and they produced a decidedly mixed picture on newly reopened US beaches, with masks common on some and drawing jeers on others. One jam-packed pool party in Missouri, footage of which went viral, was a joyful bedlam of bodies just feet or inches apart from each other. “Some political forces in the US are taking China-US relations hostage and pushing our two countries to the brink of a new Cold War,” Wang said.While once hard-hit European nations relax lockdowns as they work to salvage battered economies, other countries such as Brazil are emerging as new centres of the pandemic.Trump on Sunday suspended travel to the US by non-Americans leaving from Brazil. There was no immediate comment from the Brazilian government, run by Trump ally President Jair Bolsonaro, who has been dismissive of the virus and of lockdown measures.The US death toll rose Sunday night to 97,686, according to the Johns Hopkins University tracker, with more than 1.64 million cases of infection. The US is by far the country worst hit in both categories.Topics :last_img read more

Van Persie wants Rooney to stay

admin no comments

first_imgManchester United striker Robin van Persie thinks that “deep down” Wayne Rooney wants to remain with the Barclays Premier League champions. “He has trained a little bit with the reserves as a non-contact player, a floating player, so at least he got a little bit of football work. “He trained with the first team today [Saturday] and he did a bit of extra work, so he is probably more likely to be ready for England than he will be for us. “You’ve got to remember he has had no football practice. I explained all this and I would only expect Roy to play him for a short time.” The England international’s Old Trafford future has been up in the air ever since former manager Sir Alex Ferguson claimed in May that he had asked to leave. Rooney’s situation remains unclear three months on, with new manager David Moyes yet to call on the 27-year-old, who will also miss Sunday’s Community Shield with Wigan. Press Association Chelsea have made two unsuccessful bids for Rooney, who was understood to be “angry and confused” at comments made by Moyes that Van Persie is his number-one attacking option. But the Dutchman hopes that Rooney can work a way through whatever issues he may have. He told The Sun: “Everyone wants Wayne to stay and deep down I think he feels the same. One of the reasons I joined Manchester United was to play with Wayne. “I hope he stays. Not only is he a great goalscorer, he does so much work across the pitch. He hates to lose – that’s why you see him one minute pressing for goal, the next minute defending ferociously. “He is an asset to any team. He will come good again. He is a strong lad.” Moyes on Saturday night moved to smooth talk of a rift with the player he also coached at Everton. The shoulder injury which United have cited him as having has not stopped him being picked for England’s meeting with Scotland on Wednesday, and a pointed Facebook statement from Rooney, which thanked national boss Roy Hodgson for the faith he had shown in him while omitting any mention of Moyes or United, was taken as further proof that all is not well. However, while the position is far from ideal given Rooney’s desire to leave and his time spent training with the reserves this week, Moyes has indicated the rift is not quite as bad as some have claimed. “I had a long conversation with Roy about it last week,” Moyes told MUTV. “Wayne has had a shoulder injury. He has been sore with it, which has meant he has not been able to have any contact, so he hasn’t trained with us [the first team]. last_img read more

first_imgAs Onda Cero advanced, Carles Pérez will travel to Italy on Tuesday to sign the contract that will join Rome in the coming seasons. The giallorosso club has seduced the striker and has reached an agreement with Barça, which he will pay 13 million euros for the transfer. In principle, and according to the statements of Petrachi, sports director of Rome, no repurchase option for the azulgrana. Carles Pérez will be Barça’s third casualty in this winter market after Todibo and Aleñá, assigned to Schalke and Betis respectively. Setién told the player on Friday that they did not have him while the club was already negotiating with the Romanian club, where Carles Pérez will not have easy play with extremes like Kluivert or Under. Barça still does not incorporate a single player in the winter market and has already lost three.Carles Pérez, given as an example of love for some colors recently, is already another merchandise in the history of the Barça club. Barça’s treatment of the player has surprised Carles Pérez himself, his surroundings and the partner.last_img read more
