World faces new cold war, warns Gorbachev
November 9 , 2014
Former president of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev has said that the world is “on the brink of a new cold war”.
Speaking in Berlin as Germany marked a quarter of a century of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Gorbachev criticized the West for claiming “monopoly leadership and domination in the world” after the end of the cold war.
He said western countries had not paid much attention to “building new mechanisms and institutions of European security”.
