The current situation in international relations may bring mankind back to a new Cold War era, Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto told TASS on Thursday, Report informs.
According to him, the global coronavirus pandemic brought many problems and challenges: "We are living in interdependence, that is why we had some hope that based on this recognition, cooperation between East and West might be more respect-based. But unfortunately, what I see is not that. I see that there is a threat of a new Cold War being created," he added.
"You see that trade figures are growing among those who are in political conflicts with each other - like China and the USA," he went on to say. "International cooperation or diplomacy has not made any steps towards this respect-based approach," he regretted. This is a problem, "which I am afraid will bring some challenges in the future for our global community," Peter Szijjarto said.
