China will uphold world peace, Xi Jinping says, despite others’ concerns

Prime News, International, Beijing, October 25:- President Xi Jinping vowed on Monday (October 25) that China would always uphold world peace and international rules, amid concerns expressed by the United States and other countries over the nation’s increasing assertiveness globally.

The comments come after Taiwan said this month that military tension with China was at its worst in more than 40 years, amid mounting worries that the giant neighbour might try to take back by military force the self-ruled island it claims as its own.

 

In a speech marking the 50th anniversary of China’s return to the United Nations, Xi said it would always be the “builder of world peace” and a “protector of international order, state news agency Xinhua reported.

In 1971, the United Nations voted to recognise the People’s Republic of China as the sole representative of China, expelling Taiwan from the world body.

China has also more assertively staked its claims to disputed territory on its Himalayan border with India, and to tracts of the South China Sea disputed with some Southeast Asian nations, and over some islands in the East China Sea disputed with Japan. (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
