Xi Insists on China's Right to Regulate Its Own Internet

Chinese President, Xi Jinping, in response to concerns about China's new Internet regulations and restrictions, says "rule of law also applies to the Internet, with the need to safeguard a country's sovereignty, security and development interests as relevant as in the real world." Xi, however, has dismissed concerns regarding censorship of online speech and China's attempt to keep foreign businesses out of the country. "We welcome all foreign companies in China and will respect and protect their lawful rights and interests provided that they abide by the laws and regulations of China and do nothing to undermine China's national interests and interests of Chinese consumers," Xi said in an long written interview with The Wall Street Journal.
