China says US fuelling new Cold War due to presidential election

LONDON (HRNW) – China on Thursday accused the United States of stoking a new Cold War because certain politicians were searching for a scapegoat to bolster support ahead of the U.S. presidential election in November.

U.S. President Donald Trump identifies China as the West s main rival, and has accused President Xi Jinping of taking advantage over trade and not telling the truth over the novel coronavirus outbreak, which Trump calls the “China plague”.

Asked if he saw a new Cold War, China s ambassador to London, Liu Xiaoming, said the United States had started a trade war with China and that there would be no winner from such an approach.

“It is not China that has become assertive. It s the other side of the Pacific Ocean who want to start new Cold War on China, so we have to make response to that,” Liu told reporters. “We have no interest in any Cold War, we have no interest in any war.
