    NATO is a product of the Cold War and the world needs to create a new "just" security model, according to the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) — The Chinese Foreign Ministry called on Thursday for the international community to reject NATO Cold War policy and create a new organization to provide world security.

    "We believe that NATO is a product of the Cold War <…> We are convinced that the international community must move away from the Cold War mentality," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said during a press briefing.

    Hua explained that no country or group of states could secure absolute safety on their own.

    The spokeswoman urged the international community to create a new system of comprehensive security, which would be "fair and just."
