The President of China, Xi Jinping, should apologize to the rest of the world. He should simply say, ’’I am deeply sorry. We, as a nation referred to as the Republic of China, are regrettably sorry’’
President Xi Jinping should also make a commitment to the rest of the world that China will never allow any part of the world to experience any natural disaster in the future as a result of their actions – advertently or inadvertently.
He has to say. ‘’I am sorry. China is really sorry’’ Every leader should be a role model and lead by example. Saying that won’t belittle or dethrone him. If you cause someone great damage, even minor discomfort, you should be bold enough to say that you are sorry. Everyone does that at one point in his or her or another.
I am in Nigeria today and I have been out of work for close to two months now with dependents to care for. Many others have suffered more and died because of someone else’s making and the person or someone who speaks for him or she can’t say he or she was sorry. That’s absurd.
Saying that would mean to be a very good way of showing remorse and regret what China has caused the world. I don’t know about others.
Rather than mounting pressure on Australia to drop the proposal calling for a joint investigation inquiry of the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic or threatening her with damaging international relations, President Xi Jinping should have apologized instead and continue to seek for a collaborative way to make amends for the lives affected to the extent he can. Of course, he may not be able to raise the dead.
For the fact that the coronavirus was first reported in December in the Chinese city of Wuhan, irrespective of how it originated mildly speaking for the now, courtesy demands that China should apologize to the rest of the world.
I believe that it would douse the ill-feeling of the already infuriated world leaders who are seeking reparations whether there will some or not after coronavirus disease pandemic ends.
