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...
Xi Jinping -
I’m pretty sure this is him singing with his wife
Do you know if it’s him?
bump later read
Yup here the auntie
Good point - they would be the happiest people in the wrold... One the other hand if China invaded and took over North Korea the people would also be better off. Hell, if peasants from Nicaragua invaded and took over, North Koreans would be thrilled. Guess that's the advantage of being the arm pit of the world.
Of course he was referring to those dastardly Americans and those capitalist running dog South Koreans.
The reunification of Germany almost brought West Germany to its knees.And at that time East Germany was 50 times more prosperous,productive and self reliant than is North Korea today.The best outcome of this matter is for someone other than a maniacal psychopath to rule North Korea,have them destroy their nukes and decrease the size of their army by 75%...and then we'd sign a formal peace treaty with the north,reduce (or maybe even end) our military presence there and South Koreans...and the world...can breathe easier.
Long ago, my father was an infantry courier. Now, “Korea” is inscribed on the stone over his grave. I only served in our National Guard for a few years more recently.
American soldiers in general have been rumored and publicly portrayed in east Asia to be rapists. Interesting coincidence, as that is the kind of reputation given by our western media to working class men in general, as our US freedoms are abolished and we become peasants without families.
As for Asian affairs, I’ve wondered if Asia is any of our western business. Most of Asia doesn’t like us or know us (having only heard from our western rulers), and it appears that most of the world leaders (especially in business) are more in agreement with the broader, more race-based One China policy.
Did any of you other readers here notice the mention of Bill Gates in the article? I cannot recall having known of any man who leaned further to the anti-freedom, anti-family left than he.
Much of the population has been reduced to eating grass and tree bark. There are even reports of cannibalism. It’s a literal hell on earth.
The tragic end result of totalitarianism.
That should have been 5’ (five feet.) My mistake.:-)
It's a little more complicated than that, but your main point is correct.
Apart from the elites, the residents of the Korean peninsula have lived in a third-world economy for most of their history. (The same could be said of Europe until the 1800s or 1900s, by the way.)
Malnutrition and lack of key vitamins and calcium will lead to stunted growth. There is a reason why medieval suits of armor would be too small for most Westerners today.
South Koreans still do not drink enough milk for optimal health. (Yes, I know that lactose intolerance is common with Asians; what is less clear is whether this is due to genetics or due to cultural factors, i.e., mothers not providing cow milk to children after being weaned from mother's milk or formula.) With that exception, South Korea has a first-world economy and huge amounts of food gets wasted, much like the West.
The result is that South Koreans are now growing closer to their maximum genetic height, but North Koreans today who are malnourished are closer to the height of all Koreans prior to the Korean War, including those who grew up in the South.
