XINING: Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, said that not a single ethnic group should be left behind in the country’s efforts to fully build a modern socialist China.
Xi made the remarks on Tuesday afternoon while visiting a village and talking with villagers in Shaliuhe Township in Gangcha County, Haibei Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, during his inspection tour of northwest China’s Qinghai Province.
“We are a family, and we are all brothers and sisters,” Xi told the villagers, calling on them to have confidence in a brighter future.
“Great changes have taken place in the village,” Xi said when talking with the villagers. “We are very glad to see that every one of you is leading a happy life, and we can feel the profound bonding you have with the Party and the government.”
“By the time New China celebrates its centenary, the Chinese nation will, without a doubt, stand firmer and stronger among the world’s nations,” Xi said, adding that by that time China will surely be a happy and modern country.
Xi stressed that the Chinese nation is closely united like the seeds of a pomegranate. “We are all members of the community of the Chinese nation.”
Meanwhile, Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, has underlined the importance of ecological conservation, saying that ecology is resource, wealth and treasure.
Xi made the remarks on Tuesday while inspecting the achievements made in comprehensively harnessing environmental problems and protecting biodiversity at the Qinghai Lake during his inspection tour of northwest China’s Qinghai Province.
“I had visited the Sanjiangyuan (Three-River-Source) area and Qilian Mountains. This time I came specially for Qinghai Lake,” said Xi.
Noting the important strategic role of Qinghai in ecological civilization, Xi demanded efforts to better promote ecological progress, protect ecological resources, implement national ecological strategy and build up national parks.
