China debt crunch

Xi stays away from Evergrande but calls for inclusive growth at U.N.

Chinese leader sticks to 'common prosperity' theme, even as debt crisis looms

BEIJING/NEW YORK -- Chinese President Xi Jinping made no mention of embattled property developer China Evergrande Group or the threat of a systemic crisis that is shaking global stock markets as he addressed the United Nations General Assembly via video on Tuesday.

Instead, he called for the world to aim for "balanced, coordinated and inclusive growth" and that the fruits of development be shared among the people.
