Chinese President Xi Jinping is staring down the battle of a third term, vowing to steer his nation through the stormy days ahead

Chinese President Xi Jinping promised to guide the country to success, during his opening speech of the party Congress.

Xi is staring down the barrel at an almost-certain third term in power.

He vowed to focus on rebuilding China in the face of covid and tackle the challenges presented in the face on pro-longed lockdowns, reaffirming his ‘zero-covid’ policy.

When it comes to Hong Kong, he said his Party turned the region from “chaos to Governance”

Next, in Taiwan, Xi promised to continue to strive for reunification, warning China will use force and taking all measures necessary.

He said China would “strive for peaceful reunification”, before warning Beijing will  “never promise to renounce the use of force and we reserve the option of taking all measures necessary.”

“The wheels of history are rolling on towards China’s reunification and the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Complete reunification of our country must be realised,” Xi said.

Lastly he mentioned growing geopolitical tensions with the west, and underscored China’s growing power and influence on the global stage.

China has “taken a clear-cut stance against hegemonism and power politics” and “never wavered” in opposition to unilateralism and “bullying”, Xi said.

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.
