BEIJING: China does not want world leadership but could be forced to assume that role if others step back from that position, a senior Chinese diplomat said on Monday, after US President Donald Trump pledged to put "America first" in his first speech.
Zhang Jun,, director general of the Chinese foreign ministry's international economics department, made the comments during a briefing with foreign journalists to discuss President Xi Jinping's visit to Switzerland last week.
In their dreams!

Nobody cars about China? Only mental hallucinations and delusions of Chinese Communist party. Not even Chinese people themselves have any confidence in their own Chinese fake goods; fake universities; fake banks; fake planes; fake trains; fake cars.; fake politicians. Leadership dreams indeed!!!! lol

china may become worlds largest economy, nobody cares as long as there is no democracy and its peoples choice.
Democracy has nothing to do with it... India is a democracy and its in the gutter... to control such a large population autocracy is required
Why China so eager ? Their economy is fastest but NEW and only due to the investment by US and European countries.
Does China think Intel /Apple/ iphone ,an intellectual property of China ? Only because it is made there ?
f8cking congress sold us to china.
No, US president Nixon sold us to China, also US president , who said USA first!
So be it.
At least they are having guts to talk with eye to eye to US.
What is India doing ?
