The Associated Press: China puts naval power on display; pledges peace

"Chinese President Hu Jintao sought Thursday to reassure the international community over China's rising military strength before presiding over a naval display highlighting Beijing's ambitions of becoming a major sea power.

In remarks to U.S. and other foreign naval commanders, Hu repeated China's standard position that it would never threaten other nations or seek regional dominance.

China's military, including the fast modernizing navy, 'will always be a force for the preservation of world peace and advancement of common development,' Hu said."
