Xi said any actions or tricks to split China are certain to meet with the people's condemnation and the punishment of history.

The Party has actively advanced the reform of Party and State institutions and gradually optimized and standardized their functions, it said.
Maldivian President Abdulla Yameen said Xi's election reflects the confidence of the majority of Chinese people in Xi's leading efforts to achieve the "Two Centenary Goals" and the Chinese Dream, and under Xi's brilliant leadership, China will make greater achievements in its development and bring more opportunities for various countries to achieve common development.
