Xi says China’s interests won’t be undermined

Seventy years after Chinese troops entered the Korean War to fight against US troops, President Xi Jinping yesterday said that China will never allow its sovereignty, security and development interests to be undermined. In a long speech, heavy on patriotism and flecked by anecdotes of heroism by Chinese forces, Xi said victory in the 1950-53 conflict was a reminder that his nation stood ready to fight anyone "creating trouble... on China's doorstep". Unilateralism, protectionism, and bullying would fail, Xi said on the anniversary of the deployment of Chinese troops to the Korean peninsula to help North Korea fight US-led United Nations and South Korean forces during the 1950-53 conflict. "Chinese people don't create troubles, nor are we afraid of them," Xi said to applause.
