Chinese President Xi Jinping Address to the 2015 U.N. General Assembly
Xi Jinping’s speech at the 2015 UN General Assembly is provided in both Chinese and English. Not every speech offers a great deal of insight, but the UN speeches offer a condensed (~20 minutes) perspective on a country’s foreign affairs. Xi’s speech addresses China’s growing role in the world and sense of the stakes. No one will confuse the speech with a Churchillian rally cry; yet, putting together a speech requires a great deal of coordination in the Chinese system and should be read as part of the baseline thinking in China about foreign affairs.
