Xi Jinping let his guard down during private meetings with US leaders

Over informal private meals with American leaders, China s Xi Jinping let his guard down a bit. It was a decade ago, relations were less strained, and Xi, still cementing his power, indicated he was worried about the Chinese Communist Party's grip.

Xi, speaking privately with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, suggested that China was a target of color revolutions, a phrase that the party adopted from Russia for popular unrest in the name of democracy and blamed the West. The recent Arab Spring uprisings across the Middle East reinforced his concern that China was vulnerable to public anger over corruption and inequality, both of which the country had in abundance.
