Xi underlines building professional forces at key meeting on public security
President Xi Jinping urged the nation’s public security forces to fulfill their responsibilities and missions in the new era to cr
eate a safe and stable social environment that enables people to feel an even stronger sense of security.
Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Cent
ral Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remark at a t
wo-day national conference on public security work, which concluded in Beijing on Wednesday.
He called for building highly professional public security forces that are loyal to the Pa
rty, serve the people, promote impartiality in law enforcement and remain disciplined.
Under the new historical conditions, public security departments must
adhere to the overall national security outlook and a people-centered approach, Xi said.

Such a practice would be tantamount to suicide for a high-tech giant. If the Chinese governme
nt forced Huawei to do this, it would be stifling the country’s emerging industries. But intelligence can
not be mentioned in the same breath as Huawei’s contribution to China’s industrial prosperity and national interests.
Hyping the alleged Huawei threat has violated the basic spirit of seeking truth from facts. The West is prioritizing ide
ology and considering excluding China as political correctness. Many people in Europe are aware of the lies, but
still beating the drum for a certain value orientation rather than conducting an objective analysis.
The world is changing, and if Europe keeps prioritizing ideology and political correctness in dealing with every new situation, that would be dangerous.
What Europe needs is not only the ability to distinguish between right and wrong, but also the co
urage to make its own independent choices. Europe’s cooperation with Huawei on construction of a 4G
network is already an established fact, but it seems now that beneficial collaboration has become one of the biggest risks.

Sun Qian had joined Guan Yu in escorting the two ladies, and they were on the road to Runan when
Xiahou Dun suddenly determined to pursue. So with a couple of hundred horse, Xiahou Dun set out.
When Xiahou Dun was seen approaching, Guan Yu bade Sun Qian go ahead with the carriage while he remained to deal with the pursuers.
When they were near enough, Guan Yu said, “In coming after me thus you do not reinforce the magnanimity of your master！”
Replied Xiahou Dun, “the Prime Minister has sent no definite instructions. You have caused
the death of several people, among them one of my commanders,
and so I have come to capture you！ You have behaved most grossly. The Prime Minister will decide.”
thereupon Xiahou Dun dashed forward with his spear ready to thrust.
But at that moment a rider came up behind him at full gallop, crying, “You must not fight with Guan Yu！”
Guan Yu stayed his steed at once and waited.
the messenger came up, drew from his bosom an official letter, and said to Xiahou Dun, “The Prime Minister loves General Guan Yu for his
loyalty and honor, and fearing lest Guan Yu might be stopped at the various passes, he sent me with this letter to show when necessary at any point on the road.”
“But this Guan Yu has slain several commanders of the passes. Does the Prime Minister know that？” said Xiahou Dun.
the messenger said these things were unknown.
“then,” said Xiahou Dun, “I will arrest him and take him to the Prime Minister, who may set him free or not as he wills.”
“Do you think I fear anything you can do？” said Guan Yu getting wrathful.
And he rode forward. Xiahou Dun, nothing loth, set his spear
and prepared for battle.
they met and had reached the tenth encounter when a second horseman came up at full speed, crying, “Generals, wait a little！”
Xiahou Dun stayed his hand and asked the messenger, saying, “Am I to arrest him？”
“No,” replied the messenger. “Fearing lest he should have
difficulties at the passes, the Prime Minister has sent me with a dispatch to say he is to be released.”
“Did the Prime Minister know that he had slain several commanders on the way？”
“He did not know！”
“Since he was ignorant of that, I may not let this Guan Yu go,” and Xiahou Dun gave the signal to his men to close in round Guan Yu.
