'Clash of Civilizations' theory generates only suspicion, fear

Sudheendra Kulkarni, the Indian socio-political activist and columnist, talked to CGTN after attending the opening ceremony of the Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations (CDAC) and the panel discussion on “Culture, Tourism and People-to-People Exchange” in Beijing on Wednesday. Kulkarni said Chinese President Xi Jinping made a very profound statement that all civilizations in the world are equal, no civilization is superior, no civilization is inferior, and all civilizations should be inclusive. Exclusive civilizations cannot survive.
