President Xi Jinping on Friday marked the 70th anniversary of China's entry into the Korean Conflict to battle towards U.S. troops by taking a jab at Washington as he condemned "unilateralism, protectionism and excessive egoism".

These were the details of the news China is determined to "defeat invaders", says Xi Jinping in a. for this day.

"The Chinese people mean that we should speak to the invaders in a language they understand", Xi said.

In his speech Friday, Xi highlighted alleged acts of USA aggression towards China during the Korean War and emphasized the claim that an outgunned Chinese military managed to defeat its "legendary" American counterpart.

Despite having no claim to any part of the region, Mr Pompeo tweeted: "The United States' policy is crystal clear: the South China Sea is not China's maritime empire".

"After arduous battles, Chinese and North Korean troops, armed to their teeth, defeated their opponents, shattering the myth of the invincibility of the U.S. military, and forcing the invaders to sign the armistice agreement on July 27, 1953", Xi said. During a visit last week to the PLA's Marine Corps in Chaozhou, South China's Guangzhou province, Xi urged the marines to focus on their war preparedness and combat capabilities, and stick to combat-oriented training, according to state media reports.

President Xi Jinping on Friday marked the 70th anniversary of China's entry into the Korean War to fight against USA troops by taking a jab at Washington as he condemned "unilateralism, protectionism and extreme egoism".

In his speech, Xi called the war victory "a declaration that the Chinese people have stood firm in the East, and an important milestone in the Chinese nation's march toward the great rejuvenation". The People's Republic of China had been established only the year before.

Shu Jian, a professor with the National Defense University, hailed the CPV's victory in the war "a world-class victory" that brought a fundamental change in the global status of China after lagging behind in development and being vulnerable to aggression for more than 100 years.

During his speech Friday, Xi painted the United States as an imperialist aggressor with far superior technologies and weaponry, that was nevertheless repelled by the combined forces of China and North Korea.
