Chinese President Xi Jinping

Chinese President Xi Jinping says corruption is biggest threat to ruling party at an address on the ruling Communist Party's 95th birthday. He said "We must have a staunch will, not let up on our zero tolerance attitude, investigate all cases and punish those who are corrupt. Since Xi Jinping took power over 3 years ago he's mounted a sweeping campaign against deep rooted graft and dozens of senior officials have been jailed. He used the occasion to also comment on Taiwan's independence which he fervently opposes.
