The Chinese leader made the comments during a speech he delivered in virtual format at the opening ceremony of the BRICS Business Forum on Wednesday with top leaders from Brazil, Russia, India, and South Africa.
He said “group politics”, “bloc confrontation” and military alliances will lead only to “wars and conflicts”, urging the international community to oppose hegemonic practices in a veiled criticism of the US-led NATO military alliance.
“In the past century, humanity has gone through the scourge of two world wars and the dark shadow of the Cold War. The tragedies of the past tell us that hegemony, group politics and bloc confrontation bring no peace or security; they only lead to wars and conflicts,” Xi said.
“The Ukraine crisis is another wake-up call for all in the world.
It reminds us that blind faith in the so-called ‘position of strength’ and attempts to expand military alliances and seek one's own security at the expense of others will only land oneself in a security dilemma."
The group, which is composed of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, collectively represents more than 40 percent of the world by population.
China, India, and South Africa have abstained from voting on a United Nations resolution condemning Russia for the war in Ukraine that began on February 24.
The military operation has drawn waves of sanctions by the United States and its European allies against Moscow and brought a large cache of advanced weapons into Ukraine.
In an apparent reference to the United States, Xi, whose country is also reeling under sanctions by Washington, said the policy had a boomerang function and brings its repercussions.#Chinese leader #BRICS 22-06-22
