Mr Xi's speech was meant as a closing statement to the largely ceremonial National People's Congress, which abolished term limits on his leadership and gave Mr Xi the kind of power not seen since the days of the People's Republic of China's founder, Mao Zedong. Xi also promised a "new era" of global military and economic supremacy for his country.

Both India and China are ancient civilisations with global influence, Modi said, adding that India will work with China to enhance high-level exchanges, deepen bilateral ties, strengthen coordination and cooperation in worldwide affairs to further a closer developmental partnership between the two countries and promote global and regional peace and development, according to the report. "These separatist actions will be met with the condemnation of the people and punishment of the history". "We are resolved to fight the bloody battle against our enemies, and on the basis of independence we are determined to recapture the relics", he said in a nationally televised speech.

"We are resolved to fight the bloody battle against our enemies. with a strong determination to take our place in the world", Mr Xi told almost 3,000 delegates gathered in the red flag-bedecked Great Hall of the People in Beijing. This is the first conversation between the leaders of the two Asian giants ever since China amended its constitution to make Xi "the eternal President".

Xi said China has all the capabilities to take its due place in the world.

This could prompt fears of what a highly-modernized Chinese army might mean for its many territorial disputes in the region, including in Taiwan and the South China Sea.

Mr Xi said "achieving total unity" was the "collective hope of all Chinese people" and any attempts to divide it were "doomed to fail".

On March 11, the rubber-stamp Chinese legislature passed a historic constitutional amendment formally removing term limits to enable President Xi to stay on as the Chinese president beyond 2023. "China also pursues peaceful development and in the same vein China will not occupy an inch of land of others", he said.

"Only those who habitually threaten others will look at everyone else as threats", Xi added.

He also heaped praises on the Chinese military forces, saying that they were the "stepping stones" in building a strong China, CNN reported.

"I am convinced once the 1.3 billion Chinese people carrying on such big dreams we will certainly translate into a reality", he said, drawing loud applause from his audience inside the Great Hall of the People.

He said China will contribute more Chinese wisdom, Chinese solutions and Chinese strength to the world, to push for building an open, inclusive, clean, and attractive world that enjoys lasting peace, universal security, and common prosperity.
