Xi Jinping urged the world to discard Cold War mentality

The world should discard Cold War mentality – as stated by Chinese President Xi Jinping at the 2022 World Economic Forum virtual session on January 17th, TASS reports


"We need to discard Cold War mentality and seek peaceful coexistence and win-win outcomes,” the Chinese leader stressed, adding that our world today is far from being tranquil. “Rhetorics that stroke hatred and prejudice abound,” he said.

Xi Jinping also pointed to acts of certain countries and groups aimed at containment, suppression or confrontation, which do harm to world peace and security. He stressed, “History has proved time and again that confrontation does not solve problems; it only invites catastrophic consequences."

As previously reported, the Chinese leader said that the world economy is emerging from the depths, yet it still faces many constraints. He urged the countries of the world to strengthen international co-operation against COVID-19.
