New Delhi: President of China Xi Jinping on Thursday warned against the growing tensions in the Indo-Pacific that can cause a regress into Cold War mentality.

Jinping’s remarks came weeks after the yearly summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum after the United States, Australia and Britain announced the latest security alliance in the Indo-Pacific region, looking forward to building Australia’s nuclear submarines. However, China has sternly criticized the deal.

In a pre-recorded video, Jinping was seen speaking to a CEO Summit at APEC, being hosted by New Zealand virtually. According to sources, the Chinese President has been scheduled to take part with other Pacific Rim leaders including USA President Joe Biden on Saturday.

During the speech, Jinping stated efforts to draw boundaries in the sea region along geopolitical and ideological lines would fail.

“The Asia-Pacific region cannot and should not relapse into the confrontation and division of the Cold War era,” he said.

He also cited that the region should make sure to keep the supply chain of lines steady as well as the functioning and to continue investment and liberalizing trade.
