BEIJING: China needs security to develop and must modernize its military to make it a “Great Wall of Steel”, President Xi Jinping said on Monday, amid rising tensions with the United States.

Speaking for the first time in his record-breaking third term as head of state, Xi called on China to increase its ability to safeguard national security and manage public safety.

“Security is the foundation for development, stability is the prerequisite for prosperity,” he said when closing the annual session of parliament.
