China tells U.N.: tariffs, trade disputes could plunge world into recession

UNITED NATIONS, Sept 27 (Reuters) - China’s top diplomat said on Friday that tariffs and trade disputes could plunge the world into recession and Beijing was committed to resolving them in a “calm, rational and cooperative manner.”

In speech to the annual United Nations General Assembly, State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said: “Erecting walls will not resolve global challenges, and blaming others for one’s own problems does not work. The lessons of the Great Depression should not be forgotten.” (Reporting by David Lawder and David Brunnstrom; editing by Grant McCool)
