MADRID, 21 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday stressed the importance of putting aside the “Cold War” mentality and urged world peace through a global security plan that fosters economic growth and recovery.
In a speech on the occasion of the Annual Conference for Asia, the president lamented that the world is “at a crossroads” caused by armed conflicts and the coronavirus pandemic and has called for “greater coordination between the large economies” to avoid serious consequences.
Thus, it has called for the implementation of measures to stabilize the global supply chain and has promised to carry out reforms in this regard.
In addition, he has proposed a global security plan led by China within the framework of the United Nations and has criticized unilateral actions and confrontations, according to the Xinhua news agency.
“We remain committed to a common, exhaustive and cooperative vision to maintain peace and security. We respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries and non-interference in the internal affairs of each one of them”, he clarified in a clear allusion to the war in Ukraine.
“We abide by the principles of the United Nations Charter (…) and we turn our backs on bloc confrontation. We take the concerns of all countries seriously and (…) we oppose the idea of trying of achieving one’s own security at the expense of that of others”, he stressed.
Xi has once again stressed the importance of “resolving disputes between countries through dialogue and consultation” and has expressed support for the “peaceful resolution of crises.”
