I would assume the Chinese are wise enough to understand the pitfalls of world 'leadership.'

"China is rapidly developing the capacity to confront or neutralise America’s military advantage. First, although China’s defence budget is smaller ($150bn), it can deliver a ‘bigger bang for the buck’ (due to the huge cost differentials between China and the US). Second, under President Xi Jinping’s guidance, the PLA is being comprehensively reformed to become a “technologically sophisticated army”. China is spending heavily on military R&D. Some of the weapons systems it has recently unveiled have surprised Western military observers."

"While America’s historical alliances no doubt enhance its global power and influence, it is also severely constrained, politically and militarily, by ‘legacy issues’, such as the unconditional commitment to Israel; the ‘war on terror’; the intervention in Iraq; the confrontation with Iran; the Afghan quagmire; and the ‘new Cold War’ with Russia."

We can read all these appetizing news in the official media that toe the Party's propaganda line. Why don't you add a little substance? This you can do by listening to other countries' voices and reporting them

India for example sees itself being encircled by China and it is obvious that the new strategy of China is to make India more vulnerable. China has no qualms about blackmailing small nations along its periphery - Vietnam, Korea, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Bhutan.

China knows full well that for any regional trade arrangement to garner broad support, it must be open, inclusive and beneficial to all. So it will proceed on the road to building a community of shared future for humankind by persistently advocating free trade, and welcoming the world to benefit from China's rapid development.

The Belt and Road Initiative, comprising the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, illustrates the philosophy and vision of a shared future for mankind.

And the proposal to establish a Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific, which was put forward at the 2014 APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting in Beijing, demonstrates China's determination to help build an open and integrated regional and global economy, as the FTAAP will add $2.4 trillion to the world economy, according to the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council.

China's vision of building a community of shared future for humankind on the basis of mutual benefit and win-win cooperation is different from the zero-sum game that dominated international relations for years. "China will never seek hegemony or engage in expansion," said Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, in his report to the 19th National Congress of the CPC last month.

China is now taking the lead in helping transform the winner-takes-all game into an all-winners game.

For example, on Monday, China asked the ASEAN leaders' meeting to start consultations on the text of a Code of Conduct in the South China Sea so as to contribute to the building of a more peaceful and sustainable international order. All parties involved believe that peace is mandatory for development, and cooperation can boost shared growth.

As the world faces the rising risks of protectionism and unilateralism, China's commitment to build a community of shared future for mankind has created new opportunities for the international community, especially underdeveloped and developing countries, to join hands and develop together.
Believe it or not, it's true.
