Xi slams new Cold War, but White House says competition inevitable

Biden to form 'new approach' on China after consulting allies and Congress

Chinese President Xi Jinping addresses the Davos Agenda meetings on Jan. 25 in a screenshot from the World Economic Forum video feed.

SHANGHAI -- Nations must reject Cold War thinking and embrace "strategic communication" to build trust, Chinese President Xi Jinping said in an address to the World Economic Forum on Monday, making his case to a global audience days after new U.S. President Joe Biden's inauguration.

"The problems facing the world are interconnected and complex," Xi said via video link to the Davos Agenda meetings -- an online prelude to the forum's mid-pandemic, in-person summit in Singapore in May. "The way out of them is through upholding multilateralism and building a community with a shared future for mankind."
