A top Vatican cardinal has warned that there is no place for borders in the new "globalized world" that global superpowers are ushering in.

According to Cardinal Miguel Angel Ayuso Guixot, the Vatican plans to continue pursuing diplomatic relations with China.

The announcement follows the renewal of a 2018 Sino-Vatican accord on the naming of bishops in China.

Cardinal Guixo, the president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, argued that, for globalism to work, borders and "differences" must be eradicated.

“What we hope is that this openness continues, that this long process continues, because in a globalized world, there are no differences, there are no borders,” Guixo said.

The Vatican is seeking “an openness that allows us to make a step forward,” he added.

During a round table with journalists Friday, the Spanish cardinal said that interreligious dialogue, including with non-believers, is needed now more than ever “because it favors processes of peace.”

He also insisted that itr facilitates common solutions to problems such as poverty, war, climate change, migration, and human trafficking.

This dialogue is not simplistic or superficial, and it must be done with mutual respect, openness, and without fear, he said.

He calls it a path “of awareness, sharing, and collaboration” that involves “making concrete steps together with members of other religions and with other people,” Crux reported in its coverage of the event.

“Everyone is called, in our difficult time, to be messengers of peace, artisans of communion,” he said.

The cardinal insists that the present moment must be “a time of fraternity.”

On February 4, Pope Francis celebrated the U.N.’s first International Day of Human Fraternity together with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed, according to Breitbart.

“This celebration responds to a clear call that Pope Francis has been making to all humanity to build a present of peace in the encounter with the other,” Cardinal Ayuso stated at the time.

In an interview with Vatican media in August 2019, Ayuso declared that “interfaith dialogue is the only efficient antidote to the evil of fundamentalism.”

Religious leaders are called to “build bridges, strengthen dialogue and overcome the temptation to close themselves and fuel the ‘clash of civilizations,’” he said.
