Days after U.S. President Donald Trump denounced globalism before world leaders at the United Nations, China and Russia positioned themselves Friday as defenders of internationalism that are keeping promises when Washington is backing away from them.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi denied his country was trying to eclipse the U.S. as a world leader, but his speech at the U.N. General Assembly was a stark contrast to Trumps America First message. It came amid rising tensions between the U.S. and China, which Trump accused this week of interfering in the upcoming U.S. midterm elections. China denies the claim.
Russia is also facing U.S. accusations of election meddling, which Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov denounced as baseless, but didnt dwell on.
His country has been working to make itself a counterweight to Washingtons global influence, and Lavrov used his speech to lash out at U.S. policies in Iran, Syria and elsewhere and vigorously defended multilateral organizations such as the U.N.
And he said Moscow will do everything possible to preserve the multinational 2015 deal deal aimed at curbing Irans nuclear program, despite the U.S. decision to withdraw from it. Lavrov called the U.S. move a violation of U.N. resolutions and a threat to stability in the Middle East.
Seeking to maintain leverage in discussions on North Koreas denuclearization efforts, Lavrov met with North Koreas foreign minister earlier this week on the same day that Ri Yong Ho met with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Lavrov and Wang were hardly the only leaders to defend the concept of multilateralism at this weeks U.N. gathering of presidents, prime ministers, monarchs and other leaders.

Communist China for globalism. Whod a thunk?
We’re not going anywhere.
We don’t support world government.
We will be a player on the global scene for a long long time.
The U.N. and anyone buying into the pantload they want to sell, can take that to the bank.
chinese communist globalism may result in complete radical islam eradication.
The silver lining.
The Tri-Lateral Commission will not stand for it.
Bert you are Free Traitor globalist. So what do you think? You are on board with China right?
If anything, balancing trade would make the USA stronger internationally.
Then USA tells the EU pay your UN and NATO bills. SO that is the definition of rejecting internationalism? LOL
I’ve told you many times. I observe and produce findings as an unbiased observer
My China findings are unbiased but realistic
Your head is so far up China’s butt it’s not funny.
In my mind, multilateralism is not globalism.
America is party to many multilateral agreements that are not global.
The author is confusing multilateral consensus and action with loss of soverignty to a global entity.
It helps them in the spread of communism. Same for Islam — they too are in favor of globalism in order to spread their religion.
They may wish to become the Borg. But US patriots will NOT be so readily assimilated.
