No civilization is superior, says China's Xi as US trade war heats up

Chinese President Xi Jinping has urged countries not to "close their doors and hide behind them" in his first major public speech since US President Donald Trump raised tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods amid an escalating trade war.
Opening the Conference on Asian Civilizations Dialogue in Beijing on Wednesday, Xi said there was no need for "civilizations to clash with each other." "No civilization is superior over others. The thought that one's own race and civilization are superior and the inclination to remold or replace other civilizations are just stupid," he said, adding to do so would invite "catastrophic consequences."
