Chinese Vice Premier Liu He said on Tuesday that the world should abandon its Cold War mentality and seek to strengthen international cooperation.

In a special address at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Liu repeatedly called on countries to improve diplomatic relations, “to ‘firmly safeguard world peace.’

“We must abandon the Cold War mentality, try to understand the essence of things from the perspective of material duality, strive to build a community with a shared future for humanity, and unite to meet global challenges,” said Liu, according to a translation. “We believe that a fair international economic order should be preserved by all of us.”

Referring to this year’s WEF theme “Cooperation in a Fragmented World”, Liu said it is imperative for China to open up to the world. He added that Beijing opposes unilateralism and protectionism.

China, which has been heavily criticized for failing to condemn the nearly year-long war between Russia and Ukraine, recently promised to maintain its “objective and clear position” on the conflict.

Liu pushed for a global response to the climate crisis and called for more attention to potential contagion risks to emerging markets as major central banks raise interest rates.

He separately described the Covid situation in China as “stable”. Beijing abruptly ended most Covid controls in early December, leading to a spike in infections among the country’s 1.4 billion population.

China is taking awareness-raising measures. Earlier on Tuesday, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce said the country’s deputy prime minister will soon meet US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen in Switzerland. The sit-down, which is due to take place on Wednesday in Zurich, will mark the first face-to-face meeting between Liu and Yellen. The two men will discuss how to “strengthen the coordination of macroeconomic and financial policies”, the ministry said.

Late last year, US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping reported a desire to improve bilateral relations. The rapprochement between the world’s two largest economies comes despite simmering tensions over issues such as Taiwan, Exchange policy and human rights.
