… the Uighurs, Inner Mongolians and we will believe you. Drop you claims on parts of S.E.A too.

Xi Jinping’s decision to compare China to the proverbial “king of the jungle” yesterday was seen as the latest sign that the president intends to pursue a more muscular foreign policy.

Xi used the lion metaphor in a speech in Paris to commemorate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations with France.

He introduced it via a quote often attributed to Napoleon Bonaparte more than two centuries ago: “China is a sleeping lion. Let her sleep, for when she wakes she will shake the world.”

Xi told an audience that included French President Francois Hollande: “Today, the lion has woken up. But it is peaceful, pleasant and civilised.”
