China and the Asia-Pacific region need each other to prosper, President Xi Jinping said on Monday, insisting there was space for everyone to grow despite territorial disputes and tensions with Washington. \"China cannot develop in isolation of the Asia-Pacific and the Asia-Pacific cannot prosper without China,\" Xi said at an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Indonesia. \"China will firmly uphold regional peace and stability,\" he said in a speech to APEC business leaders. \"Without peace, development is out of the question, like water without a source or a tree without roots.\"
