China’s economic expansion requires a military component. Opinion

29.03.2023, Beijing.

Economic expansion is unstable if it is not backed by military force, according to summaries from the war theater published in the Essence of Time newspaper.

The newspaper quotes President Xi Jinping as saying. He said that China will not seek hegemony and does not seek external expansion.

China’s modernization will only strengthen the forces advocating international stability. Regardless of China’s power, the republic will never “pursue hegemony or external expansion,” Xi stressed.

“Meaning, of course, military expansion. But China’s economic expansion is more than successful.”

“But the current situation is such that without a military component, economic gains abroad are unsustainable,” the Essence of Time editorial reads.
