Leading officials should demonstrate leadership and set an example, Xi said. He urged them to uphold the rule of law, oppose the rule of man, and exercise their duty within the bounds of the Constitution and laws.
XI'AN - The Chinese mainland's Taiwan affairs chief Wednesday called on both sides across the Taiwan Straits to work together for the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations and peaceful reunification of the motherland.
During the discussion, eight NPC deputies delivered speeches on issues including high-quality growth, environmental protection in the Yangtze River region, innovation, Party building and Chinese traditional culture.
Xi calls on China, Turkey to closely communicate, coordinate over major issues within multilateral mechanisms.
Xi emphasized the need for three virtues. First, and foremost, he said, is political virtue. Officials should stand firm in their political ideals and convictions, enhance Party consciousness and take clear positions on key issues.
He said the Chinese mainland is willing to share the development opportunities with Taiwan compatriots, deepen the cross-Straits economic and cultural exchange and cooperation, and bring tangible benefits to Taiwan compatriots and enterprises.
