US President Joe Biden has fired a stinging slap at the UN amid a warning that the United States is heading into a new cold war with China. Mr Biden told the gathering of world leaders in New York on Wednesday that Washington was not seeking a global standoff with America’s adversaries, although he did not mention China by name. The US president argued that America did not want to see a “divided world” and argued that his government was ready to work with any nation that “stepped up”.

President Biden told the United Nations Assembly: “We are not looking for a new cold war.

“Or a world divided into rigid blocks.

“The United States stands ready to work with any nation that engages and seeks a peaceful resolution.”

“It’s a recipe for trouble.

“It would be a lot less predictable than the Cold War,” Guterres added.

“We will do this through cooperation and multilateral institutions like the United Nations.

“To amplify our collective strength and speed, our progress in addressing these global challenges.

“There is a fundamental 21st century truth in each of our countries and as a global community that our own success is also linked to that of others.

“To be of service to our own people, we must also engage with the rest of the world.”
