U.S. and Japan try to sow the seeds of a new Cold War in Asia-Pacific, said Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin, APA reports.
"The U.S. and Japan claim to advance regional peace and security, but what they do is finding pretexts for military build-up and wilful use of force. Countries in the region are for justice and against hegemonism. They hope to engage in cooperation, not confrontation. They aspire for true multilateralism and reject small circles that incite bloc confrontation. We urge the US and Japan to abandon the Cold-War mentality and ideological bias, stop creating imaginary enemies and stop trying to sow the seeds of a new Cold War in the Asia-Pacific, and not to become disrupters of a stable Asia-Pacific," said Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson.
