    US President Donald Trump appeared not to heed the UN secretary-general’s warning, bashing China over the coronavirus pandemic. Chinese President Xi Jinping said his country wasn’t planning on entering a second Cold War. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged the world to prevent a Cold War and halt conflicts so it can focus on the coronavirus pandemic. He made the comments as he opened the almost entirely virtual UN General Assembly general debate, marking the organization’s 75th anniversary. Tensions have been soaring between the world’s two largest economies, with the nations clashing over technology, trade and the pandemic, which Trump blames China for. Trump opened his speech with a fierce verbal criticism of China. Calling the coronavirus the “China virus,” he said the country had “unleashed this plague” onto the world. The US president also attacked Beijing over its environmental record, accusing it of overfishing, dumping plastic into oceans, and emitting more toxic mercury than any country. He said the US was pursuing a policy of “peace through strength,” and praised his country’s weapons as “advanced.”
