China says Australia call for COVID-19 probe is political maneuvering

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang also told reporters during a briefing that China has no wildlife wet markets, responding to a question about U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo’s comments calling for China to close all wildlife wet markets in the country.
