BEIJING -- China will not resort to the threat of force at will, nor will it "flaunt its military power on others' doorsteps at the drop of a hat," said Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), on Friday.

"Flaunting power everywhere will not reflect strength and it will not scare anyone," Xi said at a rally here marking the 95th founding anniversary of the CPC.

He stressed China's military strategy of "active defense."
