Within a few days, the special services must prepare a declassified version of the document.
The U.S. intelligence services presented their report on the origin of the coronavirus to President Joe Biden on Tuesday. Still, in it, they could not reach a consensus on whether the virus was developed in the laboratory or appeared naturally. This was reported by The Washington Post with reference to two representatives of the American authorities.
According to them, the special services should prepare a declassified version of the document for its publication within a few days. However, according to sources, the report, despite the extensive amount of information studied, does not contain a conclusion about the origin of the virus.
According to the newspaper, one of the representatives of the authorities noted that the American intelligence community is “not the best equipped to solve this issue,” since the establishment of the origin of the coronavirus is primarily the responsibility of scientists, not intelligence officers.
On Monday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that the declassified version of the report on the origin of the coronavirus should be presented to the public a few days after the document is handed over to Biden. She noted that she could not yet say exactly in what form this version would be presented.
