‘Not Sure Xi Jinping Is In The Strong Position That He Was In 2012’

NEW DELHI: Espionage, an inalienable part of the Chinese Communist Party’s strong-arm tactics, has been used differently over the years by successive Chinese leaders beginning with Mao Zedong. So what about Xi Jinping?The problem with Xi is that he wants to do everything at the same time, says French investigative journalist and author Roger Faligot. In this chat with StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale, the author of the book Chinese Spies: From Chairman Mao to Xi Jinping, said Xi may have used the secret service to put down many opponents but he does not seem to be on the strong footing that he was when he took over.
