PARIS (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron told Australian Prime Minister that the time has not come for an international investigation into the coronavirus pandemic and that the urgency is to act in unison before finding out who was at fault, said an official.
“He says that it is appropriate that there were some problems at the start, but that the urgency is for cohesion, that it is not time to talk about it, while reaffirming the need for transparency for all actors, not just for the WHO, ”an Elysée official told Reuters on Wednesday.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called for an international investigation into the pandemic when he made phone calls to President Donald Trump and German and French leaders overnight, the government announced on Wednesday.
