The Chinese Foreign Ministry has issued a warning aimed at Washington, calling on the US not to push its own form of democracy on other nations or split the international community by excluding countries from its upcoming summit.

Speaking at a regular press briefing on Tuesday, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said that nations around the world should be coming together to strengthen global coordination and cooperation while overcoming the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. He contended that countries should be jointly addressing global challenges and urged world leaders to push back against a new cold-war mentality. (RT)
