WEST COULD FACE ‘LIGHT COLD WAR’ WITH BEI­JING

Calgary Herald - - WORLD -

For­mer British prime min­is­ter Tony Blair’s in­sti­tute said on Wed­nes­day that China’s new-found global clout means the West faces a “light Cold War” or at least big power ri­valry with the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic.

U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has re­peat­edly con­fronted China over trade and its han­dling of the out­break, though Bei­jing has cast Wash­ing­ton’s fears over its clout as anti-chi­nese hys­te­ria. The Tony Blair In­sti­tute for Global Change said polling showed that China is con­sid­ered to be a force for bad in the world by more than half of peo­ple in the United States, Bri­tain and France.
