For more: https://www.cgtn.com/video China marked the 70th anniversary of entering the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea at the DPRK’s request. It’s a somber anniversary, given the fatalities on all sides and the destruction to the Korean Peninsula, that no country, including China, wants to repeat. Chinese President Xi Jinping has stressed carrying forward the great spirit demonstrated by the Chinese People’s Volunteers army in the war, but some media outlets have been interpreting China’s message as a provocation to the U.S. as the two countries clash over issues ranging from trade and tech to the South China Sea. Are media outlets misunderstanding China’s message? Guests: Lyu Xiang, a research fellow at Chinese Academy of Social Science; Ian Goodrum, a senior editor and columnist at China Daily; and Brandon Blackburn-Dwyer, president of Grasshopper StrategiesCGTN YouTube Channel
