Beijing, Jun 22 (PTI) Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday hit out at the US and EU for imposing sanctions against Russia for its invasion of Ukraine, saying the act of wilfully imposing curbs will harm people around the world.

Without naming the Quad (US, India, Australia, Japan) grouping and the AUKUS (US, UK Australia) Xi lashed out at group politics and bloc confrontation, emphasising that they bring no peace or security and only lead to wars and conflicts.

History has shown that hegemony, group politics and bloc confrontations bring neither peace nor stability, but rather war and conflict, Xi said in a keynote speech delivered in a virtual format at the opening ceremony of the BRICS Business Forum.
