Xi Warns Other Countries Not to Dictate to China in Landmark Speech

BEIJING – Chinese President Xi Jinping said his country will not be dictated to during a speech on Tuesday commemorating the 40th anniversary of China’s economic revolution.

At the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, Xi delivered an address praising China’s economic achievements and its autonomy amid a trade dispute with the United States and a sputtering economy.

“No one is in a position to dictate to the Chinese people what should or should not be done,” Xi said.

He said that the country would continue opening up to the outside world while staying on the path of “socialism with Chinese characteristics,” according to state-run Xinhua news agency.

Through these policies, China has been able to eliminate problems such as “hunger, shortage and poverty” which plagued the country and its people for thousands of years, the president said.

“China has made decisive strides on the journey of growing rich and becoming strong,” Xi said, adding that the country was “moving closer to the center stage of the world as a widely recognized promoter of world peace, contributor to global development and upholder of international order.”

During the ceremony, Xi was praised for reforms which were put in place long before he took the reins of the party in 2012 and of the government a year later.

After the death of Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping pushed for reforms that transformed the country into the second largest economy in the world, but these changes also led to dramatic rises in inequality and pollution.

Xi, Prime Minister Li Keqiang, and other members of the Communist Party awarded medals commemorating contributions to China’s reform to around 100 people, including 10 foreigners.
