A glimpse of the ongoing tension between the US and China is also seen in the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

In the United Nations General Assembly session, US President Donald Trump once again held China responsible for the spread of the corona virus epidemic. He said that ‘China’s accountability’ should be fixed in this matter.

At the same time, Chinese President Xi Jinping said in his speech that ‘China has no intention of going into cold war with any country’.

Both the United States and China are big global powers, but for some time there has been tension on both fronts. On many issues, both countries have even threatened each other.

This annual summit of the United Nations General Assembly held in New York is basically virtual, with all global leaders sending their pre-recorded speeches.

This new format definitely has the effect that the kind of ‘geopolitical drama’ used to be seen every year in the annual meeting of the United Nations is not this year. Each country has sent one representative each in this session, due to which it is unlikely that any country will immediately surround the front country on any issue or ask questions.

But this possibility remains through speeches. For example, President Trump has used the session speech of the United Nations General Assembly to count his achievements and attack his opponent.

The General Assembly was opened by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for discussion. Then, without naming China or America, he warned that “We are moving in a very bad direction. This world is not ready to tolerate a confrontation between the two global powers. So we should make every effort so that new The Cold War could be avoided. “

Tensions between China and the United States, now many other global leaders are feeling ‘threatened for international stability’. The words of France’s President Emmanuel Macron expressed concern over the current situation, it clearly shows this concern.
