VIENNA, May 8 (Xinhua) -- Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz dismissed the COVID-19 "blame game" on Friday, saying that it does not make any sense, according to local media.

"I would never ask Italy to apologize that Italian tourists had brought the virus to Austria. An international 'blame game' is not sensible," said Kurz, quoted by the Austrian daily newspaper Der Standard.

"No place is responsible for a worldwide pandemic," said the chancellor when responding to a question of whether Austria needs to apologize to other countries because of Ischgl, a popular Austrian ski resort where hundreds of tourists from across Europe are believed to have been infected with the coronavirus.
