The Chosun Ilbo: Xi Jinping’s Hard Line Talks

During the Fourth Plenary Session of the 17th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, the focal point was whether Xi Jinping would be crowned as the next leader of the Communist Party. The Chosun Ilbo, or North Korea Daily, reported some of Xi’s hard Line talks:

“China can solve the problem of feeding 1.3 billion people. That has already been the greatest contribution to the global community. Some foreigners who had nothing to do after being fed kept pointing fingers at us. China does not export revolution, does not export hunger or poverty, and does not try to stir up your lives, either. Why should you criticize China?”

Response on “How to view the Tibetan turmoil.” “There are many birds in a cage. If we drive the noisy birds out, the cage will no longer be active. We have already been immunized and seen too much. The key is how we settle our scores.”
