    China has actually never ever taken one inch of land from other countries: Xi informs Biden

    < img src =" https://worldbroadcastnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/eFE3YK.jpg "class =" ff-og-image-inserted" > At his virtual summit with US equivalent Joe Biden on Tuesday, Chinese President Xi Jinping forecasted China as a peace-loving country and said it never began a war nor declared an inch of land of others as he played down the criticism that Beijing is increasingly getting aggressive over its territorial claims.

    ” Chinese people have actually always liked and valued peace. Aggression or hegemony is not in the blood of the Chinese country,” Xi informed Biden.

    ” Since the starting of the People’s Republic, China has actually never ever begun a single war or conflict, and has never ever taken one inch of land from other nations,” he claimed, in an obvious attempt to soft-pedal criticism that Beijing is aggressively asserting territorial claims in the disputed areas, be that along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with India, the South China Sea or the maritime disagreement with Japan.

    In the contested South China Sea, which is claimed by Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brunei and Taiwan, China has developed artificial islands to assert its claims.

    China too was included in a maritime disagreement with Japan over the Senkaku islands in the East China Sea which the Chinese refer to as Diaoyu islands.
