Scholz appeals to the West: Avoid the outbreak of a Cold War

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called on the West to prevent the outbreak of a new Cold War by dividing the world into blocs and called for every effort to be made to build new partnerships.

In an opinion piece published in Foreign Affairs , Scholz urged the West to protect democratic values ​​and open societies. "We must also avoid the temptation to once again divide the world into blocs," Scholz wrote in the article.

"This means making every effort to build new partnerships, pragmatically and without ideological blinders," he added.

Scholz singled out China and Russia in particular as two countries that pose a threat to a multipolar world that requires stronger European and transatlantic unity to overcome.

According to the German chancellor, the transatlantic partnership remains vital to meet the challenges posed by Russia's threat of possible attacks on allied territory, while China's turn towards isolation and its approach to Taiwan requires Europe and North America to forge new partnerships. and stronger with countries around the world.

"The Germans aim to become the guarantor of European security that our allies expect us to be, a bridge builder within the European Union and an advocate for multilateral solutions to global problems," Scholz wrote.
