US-China spats rattle world, prompting calls for unity

BEIJING (AP) — Antagonisms between the U.S. and China are rattling governments around the world, prompting a German official to warn of “Cold War 2.0” and Kenya’s president to appeal for unity to fight the coronavirus pandemic. Global trade already was depressed by the 2-year-old tariff war between the world’s two biggest economies. Their rancor has spread to include Hong Kong, Chinese Muslims, spying accusations and control of the South China Sea. European and Asia governments feel caught in the middle and are trying to defend their own interests.
