China must avoid a ‘Cold War’ with United States, says diplomat

The world must avoid a new Cold War, Chinese state councillor Wang Yi, the government’s top diplomat, said on Tuesday in apparent reference to escalating tensions between China and the United States.

Speaking on a visit to Italy, Mt Wang said it was important for China and the European Union to strengthen their own ties and cooperate further in the fight against the coronavirus.

US president Donald Trump has blamed China for the spread of the disease, having referred to Covid-19 as the “China plague” on multiple occasions.

His administration, at the same time, has moved to restrict the global development of Chinese telecom giant Huawei Technologies Co, whilst forcing other Chinese brands such as TikTok to cease operating in the US unless their operations in that market are sold.

“China will never want a Cold War…because a Cold War would be a step backwards,” Mr Wang told reporters, via an interpreter. “We will not let other countries do this for their own private interests, while damaging the interests of other countries.”
