Beijing, Oct 18: Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Wednesday that Beijing will never seek hegemony or engage in expansion “no matter what stage of development it reaches”.
“Chi will never pursue development at the expense of others’ interests and its development does not pose a threat to any other country,” Xi said at the opening of the 19th tiol Congress of the Communist Party of Chi, Xinhua news agency reported. Xi said Beijing pursued a defensive tiol defence policy and remained firm on an independent foreign policy. But Chi would never give up its legitimate rights and interests. “No one should expect Chi to swallow anything that undermines its interests,” he said. (IANS)
