Beijing, July 31 (IANS) A rising China is faced with increasing external uncertainties, a Chinese daily said on Monday, adding the country’s “rapidly developing power … allows us to find more solutions to problems”.
“With a stronger nation and military than ever, China has come to a new historic point with a greater mission,” the Global Times said in an editorial.
“It faces comprehensive internal reforms and external challenges. In complicated times, the PLA (People’s Liberation Army) provides strategic stability to this country.”
The daily said the Chinese people “should look to ourselves as the main source of stability and certainty.
“Solving both internal and external problems depends on our willpower and wisdom. China is a rapidly developing power. This allows us to find more solutions to problems. As more problems emerge, making decisions is much more difficult than ever.
“China must not be spineless or reckless. It needs to be steadfast and level-headed.”
The editorial went on: “While leaders of other countries do everything to look witty and eloquent in front of the camera, a Chinese leader is devoted to real work. It’s clear who knows his country, unites the people and inspires the military.
“…Having a brilliant leader is often a crucial factor in deciding a country’s fate.”
