No one can shake China: Xi on National Day

Oct 01, 2019 11:08 IST

Shadowed by protests in seething Hong Kong that threatened to steal the spotlight, President Xi Jinping said that ‘no force’ can shake China as he oversaw a huge military parade to celebrate 70 years of Communist Party rule. Some 15,000 troops along with tanks, missiles and high-tech drones paraded down the Avenue of Eternal Peace as Xi and other Communist Party leaders watched from a rostrum overlooking Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. The event was meant to extol China’s journey from a poor nation broken by war to become the world’s second largest economy.
