Xi Jinping lays out vision for China in nationalistic speech to parliament

Xi Jinping lays out vision for China in nationalistic speech to parliament

He reiterated that China's growth does not pose threat to any countries, as we will never seek hegemony or expansion.

Every year, Chinese annual parliament season ends with a press conference by the Premier.

When he became the general secretary of the CPC Central Committee in 2012, Xi brought up the idea of the "Chinese Dream" for the first time.

Russian Federation could announce measures against Britain 'any minute'
RT, which runs eight TV channels including RT UK broadcast from London, said it disagreed with the position taken by Ofcom. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson stepped up the war of words with Russian Federation on Thursday.

Referring to self-governing Taiwan, Xi said the mainland would continue outreach to advance the cause of "peaceful unification" with the island, whose 23 million residents are strongly in favor of maintaining their de-facto independent status. He added that China would not give up a single inch of its territory.

Expressing his heartfelt gratitude to the trust placed on him by all deputies and Chinese people of all ethnic groups, he said, "It is a glorious mission and weighty responsibility to take on this great position of the President of the People's Republic of China". He is being widely compared to Mao because the Chinese parliament has removed the two-term limit + on the president, allowing Xi to rule as long as he wishes.

Xi stressed the absolute leadership of the ruling Communist Party of which he is head in all aspects of Chinese life.

Tremors in NDA as Telugu Desam exits
The AIADMK could support the NDA if the Modi Government were to concede its demand to set up a Cauvery Management Board (CMB). Later in the eventing, the TDP chief wrote a letter to BJP president Amit Shah informing him of quitting the alliance.

"There is a distinct danger now that there may well be a return to the Maoist style of leadership symbolised by the dissolution of collective responsibility and the concentration of power under one person", said Joseph Cheng, a long-time observer of Chinese politics now retired from the City University of Hong Kong. "We are resolved to fight the bloody battle against our enemies, and on the basis of independence we are determined to recapture the relics", he said in a nationally televised speech. "We have strong capabilities of taking our due place in the world". This revision was the biggest change to the Chinese constitution after 36 years.

"Xi is consumed by hubris", said Willy Lam, an expert in Chinese politics at the Chinese University in Hong Kong.

Instead, it will "continue to actively participate in the reform and construction of global governance, and contribute more Chinese wisdom, plans and strength to the world, to promote lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity and an open, tolerant, clean and lovely world", he said.

Spring Snow: Wintry mix starts Tuesday, but storm looks more likely Wednesday
Much of Eastern Massachusetts is expected to see the highest snow totals, 8 to 12 inches. There is a growing concern for heavy snow on Wednesday across a portion of the area.

"We should safeguard the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country and achieve full unification of the motherland. This is the aspiration of all the Chinese people", Xi said in an apparent reference to Taiwan which Beijing claims as part of it. But China's opposition to a United Nations ban on Pakistani terrorist and JeM chief Maulana Masood Azhar, who plotted terror attacks at bases of Indian armed forces, has also strained their relations. "These separatist actions will be met with the condemnation of the people and punishment of the history".
