UN chief calls for dialogue with China over trade and technology

New York City - January 22 ANI UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for dialogue and negotiations between the United States and China over trade and technology to avoid the polarization of the world market and economy.

Guterres, who was asked to comment on Washington's years-old technology dispute with China, said he has always advocated for a unified global market and a unified global economy.

He said at a press briefing that we need not to avoid the division of the world into two, each with its own economic system and set of rules, each with its own dominant currency, each with its own internet, and each with its own technological strategy and artificial intelligence.

Guterres called on the world's two largest economies to find common ground over trade and technology through dialogue and negotiation to avoid such a scenario, as per Xinhua.
