Beijing: “We Chinese love peace. No matter how much stronger it may become, China will never seek hegemony or expansion,” Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Thursday.
“The Chinese army is the people’s army. All its officers, men and women must bear in mind their responsibility of serving the people whole-heartedly,” he said.
The president said, “The Chinese people are resolved to pursue friendly relations with all other countries… and make greater contribution to mankind.”
At the ceremony of the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and the World Anti-Fascist War, Xi said: “All countries should jointly uphold the international order and system underpinned by the purposes and principles of the UN Charter.”
“All countries should build a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation and advance the noble cause of global peace and development,” he added.
