BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese President Xi Jinping warned on Sunday that any attempt to divide China will be crushed, as Beijing faces political challenges in months-long protests in Hong Kong and U.S. criticism over its treatment of Muslim minority groups.

“Anyone attempting to split China in any part of the country will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones,” he told Nepal’s Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli in a meeting on Sunday, according to China’s state broadcaster CCTV.

“And any external forces backing such attempts dividing China will be deemed by the Chinese people as pipe-dreaming!” he was quoted as saying.

Xi, the first Chinese president to visit Nepal in 22 years, arrived in Nepal on Saturday on a state visit. Both sides are expected to sign a deal expanding a railway link between the Himalayan nation and Tibet.

Nepal’s Oli told Xi that the country will oppose any “anti-China activities” on its soil, CCTV reported.

China, which is trying to de-escalate a protracted trade war with the United States, has seen its political authority tested by increasingly violent protests in Hong Kong against what is seen as Beijing’s tightening grip on the Chinese-ruled city.

Yup, this is the kind of thing nervous dictators usually say.

Merely opposing Chinese expansionism will be declared “dividing China”. Don’t like what China is doing in the 1st Island Chain? Tough. They claim that area despite the fact that they never controlled it and the so-called ‘islands’ are too wet to be defined as islands.

“pipe dreaming”, a reference to the Chinese opium outbreak in the 19th century

I’m inclined to believ Xi will indeed do as he says...just a matter of time if this continues as is. He will not do so until there are no other options..

One thing for sure.....the Chinese will never forget the Opium Wars....very well likely why fentynal is heavily produced by the Chinese in their manufacturing areas and shipped into our country.

Is China going to annex Nepal . . . or have they already?

"crushed bodies and shattered bones".

Something Chinese communists have far more experience in than anyone else. As long as they're the bodies and bones of their own people.

All tyrannical dictators are nervous.

“Uneasy is the head that wears the crown”

He sounds a lot like the ayatollahs in Iran.

Anytime a tyrannical regime is seriously threatened, the response is usually war as a means of uniting the country against a common enemy.

The problem is that the U.S. is seriously divided (as a result of globalist and Chicom policies) and a unified response against China is problematic with dims such as Pelosi, Feinstein etc. It does not bode well when we can’t even count on the NBA if there’s a war with China.

Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations

Well, that sounds familiar... like the Dialogue of Civilizations / Alliance of Civilizations thing pushed by the UN in Hillary's state department days where the main goal was to impose 'blasphemy laws' as a means of restricting free speech. It started with Iranian leader Khamenei and Spain's Zapatero and, IIRC, Turkey's Erdogan.

The Alliance of Civilizations initiative was proposed by the President of the Spanish Government, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero at the 59th General Assembly of the United Nations in 2005. It was co-sponsored by the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Alliance of Civilizations - Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alliance_of_Civilizations

Can you imagine any US politician talking about shattering bones? This is what eventually happens with gun confiscation and centralized government.
