Delivering a strong message to China’s neighbours and world powers, President Xi Jinping said that his country will not give up its legitimate rights or let anyone undermine its interests.

Addressing the 19th National Congress of the ruling Communist Party of China at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, Xi also said that the country will enhance relations along its borders and open up more to the world.

He further advocated a strong, modernized military that can deter and win wars.

“China will never pursue development at the expense of others’ interests, but nor will China ever give up its legitimate rights and interests. No one should expect China to swallow anything that undermines its interests,” Xi said, adding that the country would never seek “hegemony or engage” in any expansion.

Xi said that the military would be strengthened to adapt to the “new era” and would have to shoulder the “missions and tasks of the new era entrusted to them by the party and the people”.
