'China can play key role in creating new world order'
(MNA) – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said unfortunately the United States has always tried to stir up hatred and hostility in the world in order to dominate the globe.
Ahmadinejad made the remarks in an address to a gathering of students at Peking University in Beijing on Wednesday.
Commenting on the killing of a large number of people in Iraq and Afghanistan by the U.S. forces and the killing of Palestinians by the Israeli forces, Ahmadinejad said that these acts have their roots in the forces’ hearts, which are full of hatred.
All the problems facing human society throughout history stem from lack of awareness and justice in the lives of humans, he said, adding that wise rulers that love the people and observe moral virtues can enhance awareness and establish justice in the world.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian president also commented on the cultural and historical ties between the Iranian and Chinese people and said that both nations have great experience of campaign against colonialist powers in the past.
He added, “The Iranian and Chinese nations have always followed that path and today, the two countries’ governments… are making every effort to promote justice and kindness throughout the world.”
