China will never seek hegemony or engage in expansion (2)

(People's Daily Online)

08:08, November 15, 2012

British philosopher Bertrand Russell wrote in the 1930s that the modern world badly needed traditional Chinese ethic principles, and amiability came first among such principles. The world would be full of happiness and auspiciousness if it adopted such ethics. From carrying forward the traditional principle of “cherishing peace” to proposing the diplomatic strategy of building a harmonious world, China has not only become a major engine for global economic growth, but also introduced to the world the concept of “harmony without sameness.”

Peaceful devilment does not mean development without principles, and must not sacrifice China’s core interests. China will continue to safeguard its national sovereignty, security, and interests, and never succumb to any outside pressure. The country does not make trouble, and is not afraid of any trouble. It will hit back hard at any outside provocation in order to maintain international fairness and justice and promote world peace and development.

At a time when the world remains unstable, China has injected positive energy and confidence into the noisy and impetuous world with a solemn commitment to peaceful development.
