No one should be allowed to throw Asia into chaos: Xi Jinping
Beijing, Apr 7:
Amid raging tension in the Korean peninsula, new Chinese President Xi Jinping today warned that no one should be allowed to throw the region into chaos for selfish gains, saying future of rapidly growing Asia depends on peace and stability.
No one should be allowed to throw a region and even the whole world into chaos for selfish gains, Xi said in apparent reference to US Pivot to Asia Pacific, which China says is aimed at containing it.
Stability in Asia now faces new challenges, as hotspot issues keep emerging, and both traditional and non-traditional security threats exist, Xi said in his speech at the Boao Forum for Asia at Boao which was aired live on Television.
In his wide ranging address focusing on China and Asia after taking over as President last month, 59-year-old Xi said that Asian countries need to increase mutual trust and work together to ensure durable peace and stability in the region.
About 10 heads of states, Corporate Affairs Minister Sachin Pilot, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and top corporate and business heads from the world are attending the three-day forum which began yesterday.

China gets top billing in the let’s keep the North Korean cult going. But, this is most certainly aimed at NK. I think we’re watching the end game. They’ve gotten too crazy for even China to accept.
How will reintegration look?
Bring back American manufacturing.
Here’s the deal....if North Korea starts a conflict, and then loses...it’s a united Korea. For China, that would be the greatest possible threat to their business enterprise. Imagine the South Korean companies with sudden cheap labor out of North Korea. You could hire thousands of folks, for $400 a month, free coffee, a free TV, and guaranteed 24-hour a day electricity. They’d be absolutely dedicated and the happiest people in the world.
China has no desire for everyone in North Korea to flood into Manchuria, or for a pipsqueak NK to launch a war with 2 trade partners.
This was aimed at the norks.
Says the man who is ratcheting up tensions with Japan, Vietnam, and the Philippines over South China Sea islands.
My S. Korean friend tells me that North Koreans are so malnourished and oppressed that they are, on average, 3” SHORTER than their South Korean Relatives, even though they are in the Same Ethnic Group, Same Climate, Same Region, Same Nationality. I found it SO interesting that a few generations of Marxism can actually stunt people’s growth!
Perhaps it is anecdotal, but the satellite pics of the peninsula are quite telling.
This is a sad story. The dead Chia Head can take credit for widening the gap by 3" in terms of height difference between two countries.
For a while.....then....unions, strikes, back to the same old stuff.
That is appalling!
And I suggest there may be a corresponding figure with regard to IQ, Motivation, Innate Talents, and so on.
Malnutrition during pregnancy is devastating.
Sounds like China is advocating for a new Greater East-Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere.
Using what used to be America’s industry.
Bring it back. Now.
With a barely fed population of 24.5 million, concerns about a flood of Nork refugees swimming the Yalu is a non-starter.
Similar to the Deltas and Epsilons in “Brave New World”.
The more reason to throw the region into chaos, showing China that the US still calls the shots. Keeping the PRC(and by extension, their friends) contained is as important today as it was to contain the USSR.
The list of attendees is quite telling - it shows their true loyalties. Shame that there isnt a McCarthy to take advantage of such an event.
That said, what China may see as potential chaos, is a potential for Koreans to embrace freedom - in ways not tolerated in Beijing.
Hey Tiger UK Sunday Telegraph has great story about Chia Chub Angela Lansbury Aunt LOL!
The USA is a Pacific nation, Mr. Xi, if that truly is your name...
