New Party leadership's first 100 days inspiring

Peaceful development with bottom line

On foreign policy, Xi has said China will stick to the path of peaceful development, but this will not come at the expense of its legitimate rights and interests. China will never sacrifice its core interests.

Overseas analysts believe these remarks not only suggest Beijing will continue with the path of peaceful development and win-win cooperation, but also clarify the country's bottom line in handling foreign affairs.

According to the Spanish EFE news agency, the bottom line for foreign policy would be particularly important on issues involving China's territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Meanwhile, Xi said the odds of success for Beijing's strategy to rise peacefully were, in large part, determined by whether China could grasp opportunities offered by the world, and whether China's growth could provide opportunities for the world.

The remarks, observers say, show China will be actively engaged in benign interactions with the outside world for mutually beneficial results.

Xi's words were a testament to China's aspiration for more cooperation within the region and the world at large, said Andrew Macintyre, an academic with the Australian National University.

On top of that, the new leadership had also shown themselves determined to foster relations with the world's great powers, analysts said.

In his meeting with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter on December 13, 2012, Xi said China and the United States, under the new climate, should work to build a cooperative partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit, while at the same time create a new type of bilateral ties between major powers.

On China's relations with Russia, Xi proposed the two countries step up political support for each other, and enhance coordination on regional and international affairs.

The United States and Russia have responded positively to Xi's offer, voicing willingness to further cement ties with China.

On global hot-spots, the new leadership has taken a principled approach while taking into account the overall situation of regional peace and stability, which, analysts said, had impressed the world a lot.

"There is no doubt that China's new leaders face a different world than Hu Jintao did when he took over in 2002, but chances are good that Xi's CPC will be able to adapt to and meet whatever new challenges the rapidly changing domestic and international environments pose," said an article entitled "The Life of the Party: The Post-Democratic Future Begins in China", carried by Foreign Affairs magazine.
