Xi Jinping tells parliament China must not be complacent

Empowered Xi says China ready to fight ‘bloody battle

Speaking before the almost 3000 members of the National People's Congress who had earlier abolished term limits on his rule, Xi declared that the Chinese people were "closer now than at any time in history to realising the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation". Xi also promised a "new era" of worldwide military and economic supremacy for his country.

Xi's address capped an annual session of the National People's Congress that paved the way for him to rule for life, as China's most powerful leader since Mao Zedong pushes through his vision of guiding the country through a "new era" of unrivalled global military and economic supremacy. "These separatist actions will be met with the condemnation of the people and punishment of the history", he said.

"Dear President Xi Jinping, congratulations on getting re-elected as the president of the People's Republic of China", Modi wrote.

President Xi Jinping has reiterated that China's development is no threat to other nations, even as the United States called it a "main threat".

"All acts and tricks to split the motherland are doomed to failure and will be condemned by the people", Xi told the National People's Congress.

Modi said that Xi's re-election shows that he enjoys the support of the whole Chinese nation, the report said.

Kerry Brown, director of the Lau China Institute at King's College in London, believes that Mao had penetrated the inner lives of the Chinese people which is not happening in the case of Xi.

President Trump speaks on the opioid crisis
President Donald Trump is due to give a speech about the opioid crisis in a state he once called a "drug-infested den" on Monday. Trump has declared that fighting the epidemic is a priority for the administration, but critics say the effort has fallen short.

He also sought to allay the concerns of the world over the rise of China, saying that China's development does not pose a threat to any other country.

The call comes ahead of the Shanghai Cooperation Summit to be held in June in China where Modi and Xi are likely to meet on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, Premier Li Keqiang used his once-a-year news conference to say China was committed to global co-operation on trade.

The limited check-and-balance provision of presidential term limits has gone; his philosophy under his own name is in the country's constitution; his chief tool for destroying enemies - the anti-corruption crackdown - has been widened into other parts of society and it's hard to see who is left to be able to challenge President Xi in any way whatsoever.

The comments were a clear warning to places like Taiwan, which is self-ruling but considered by Beijing to be a a rebel region that must be reunited with the mainland - by force if necessary. CCTV now has more than 70 bureaux overseas, while China Radio International broadcasts in more than 60 languages. "Today more than ever the Chinese people are close to that dream, ever more confident and capable of realising the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation", he said.

It gave a near-unanimous approval to the sweeping changes, with 2,958 votes in favour, and only two votes against, according to South China Morning Post.
