Since taking office in March 2013, President Xi Jinping has explained his security concepts on several occasions.

Security ties with big powers

While meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin last March, Xi said that China and Russia should enhance mutual political support and firmly support each other's efforts to maintain national sovereignty, security and development interests.

Last June, Xi told US President Barack Obama during Xi's US trip that China will remain firmly committed to peaceful development.

On the sidelines of the nuclear summit in The Hague in March, Xi told Obama that China and the US should stick to a vision of no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect, and win-win cooperation, and called on the two sides to promote practical cooperation in various areas.

Security ties withCentral Asian countries

In September, Xi delivered a speech at a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Kyrgyzstan, calling on all SCO members to implement the Treaty of the Long-term Good Neighborly and Friendly Cooperation among Member States of the SCO; support each other on major issues such as sovereignty, security, territorial integrity, political systems, social stability and developmental path and patterns; jointly deal with threats and challenges.

Peripheral security

At a conference on diplomatic work in October, Xi said China should advance security cooperation with neighboring countries, actively participate in regional and subregional security cooperation, and enhance cooperation mechanisms and strategic mutual trust.

Overall national security

China must attach importance to both external and internal security, Xi said while chairing the first meeting of the National Security Commission in April. Domestically, China will pursue development, reform and stability and foster a safe environment, while externally, the country will seek peace, cooperation, win-win situations and a harmonious world, he said.
