"China has become a vital power. On many occasions, President Xi Jinping gave speeches to express profound ideas, which, I think, will influence China's diplomacy and world's future in a positive way. He once mentioned that now the world has 3 kinds of deficits: deficit of peace, development and governance, which I think is a pretty penetrating summary. There are many chaos and conflicts that need to be solved urgently."
