Chinese president, Xi Jinping, addressed an annual summit of the Brics nations and told his audience that only through dialogue, consultation and negotiation could “the flame of war be put out”.
Xi said in his 40-minute address to a summit between Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa in south-east China.
“Thanks to the joint effort of all countries, global peace has reigned for more than half a century. However, incessant conflicts in some parts of the world and hotspot issues are posing challenges to world peace.
“The intertwined threats of terrorism and a lack of cybersecurity – among others – have cast a dark shadow over the world. People around the world want peace and cooperation, not conflict or confrontation.”
Trump has tried to convince us that he has talked tough and now the regime respects him for it, but as is the man, that is incredibly simplistic as a strategy.
BLOTUS’s new chief-of-staff is attempting to reboot his administration but they had better come up with a better plan than mean tweets and appease Kim Jong Un or else one morning, we’ll wake up to a mushroom cloud and an even scarier new world. Let’s hope that Trump’s strategy and solution isn’t the same as his earlier tweet for today.
