Xi Portrays China as Global Leader as Trump Era Looms

Jan 19 , 2017

China will build a "new model" of relations with the United States, President Xi Jinping said on Wednesday in a speech that portrayed China as the leader of a globalized world where only international cooperation could solve the big problems.

Two days before the inauguration of Donald Trump who has promised to be a U.S. president putting "America first", Xi urged countries to resist isolationism.

"Trade protectionism and self-isolation will benefit no one," Xi told an invited audience at the United Nations in Geneva.

"Big countries should treat smaller countries as equals instead of acting as a hegemon imposing their will on others."
