Chinese President Xi Jinping has told his troops ‘a strong army is needed now more than ever’ during a huge military parade

XI, wearing military clothing, warned the ‘world isn’t safe at this moment’ as he watched the display at Zhurihe Training Base in China’s remote Inner Mongolia region.

Among the terrifying weapons on display was China’s Chengdu J-20 stealth jet fighter as well as its new DF-31AG intercontinental ballistic missile. The rocket is mounted on an all-terrain vehicle to make it harder to track.

The event, to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the People’s Liberation Army, was at Asia’s largest military training centre which features life-size mock-up targets, including Taiwan’s presidential palace.

It came as a number of the world’s superpowers flexed their muscles in massive parades to showcase their military strength.

Clad in military fatigues President Xi inspected the 12,000 troops, repeatedly shouting ‘Hello comrades!’ and ‘Comrades, you are working hard!’ into microphones fixed on top of a jeep.

Troops shouted back: ‘Serve the people!’, ‘Follow the Party!’, ‘Fight to win!’ and ‘Forge exemplary conduct!’

In a live address Xi, who commands the People’s Liberation Army, called on the Chinese military to transform itself into an elite fighting force to bolster the country’s rise into a world power.
