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.
"I will be very happy to hold new meetings with you. It is believed that with the joint efforts of both sides, we will surely further consolidate and enrich the Russia-China Comprehensive Strategic Partnership of Coordination," Putin said.
Adapting to the new historic juncture for the development of China and acting in response to the evolution of the principal contradiction in Chinese society, Xi said, the country will uphold the great banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics and fully implement the spirit of the 19th Party congress and the second and third plenary sessions of the 19th CPC Central Committee.
Comparing the process to "another Long March", Xi warned the whole nation against being satisfied with the status quo, indulging oneself in ease and comfort or letting delight dispel worries.
He called on all political parties, people's organizations, ethnic groups and people of all sectors to rally closely around the CPC Central Committee and march forward with one heart and one mind.
