BEIJING - Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, on Friday called on his comrades to "stay true to the mission" taken up by the CPC 95 years ago.

"One who wants to stride ahead should not forget the path that was trodden. No matter how far we will travel and to whatever bright future, we should not forget what we have done and why we set out to do it," said Xi, at a rally marking the 95th founding anniversary of the CPC in Beijing.

He called on CPC members to "uphold the fighting spirit" of the Party's founding members and their commitment to the people.


The Communist Party of China (CPC) should adapt Marxist principles to the current realities in China, and be innovative both in theory and practice, said Xi.

"Marxism is never the end of truth. It opens a path toward truth," Xi said at a rally marking the 95th founding anniversary of the CPC.

Xi stressed the Party's continued devotion to Marxism. "Deviating from or abandoning Marxism, which is the fundamental guiding theory for both the Party and the country, our Party would lose its soul and direction," he said.  

Socialism with Chinese characteristics

Socialism with Chinese characteristics should be evaluated not by "people with tainted glasses," but by the Chinese, based on facts, said Xi.

"CPC members and the Chinese people are fully confident of providing a Chinese solution to mankind's exploration of better social systems," said Xi on Friday at a rally marking the 95th founding anniversary of the CPC.

The whole Party should strengthen confidence in the path, theory, system and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics, he said.

Active defense

China will not resort to the threat of force at will, nor will it "flaunt its military power on others' doorsteps at the drop of a hat," said Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), on Friday.

"Flaunting power everywhere will not reflect strength and it will not scare anyone," Xi said at a rally here marking the 95th founding anniversary of the CPC.

He stressed China's military strategy of "active defense."

Opposition to "Taiwan independence"

Xi stressed the political foundation of adhering to the 1992 Consensus and opposing "Taiwan independence" to ensure the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations at a rally on Friday.

"We firmly oppose the 'Taiwan independence' secessionist activities," Xi said.

"More than 1.3 billion Chinese people and the whole Chinese nation will by no means tolerate secessionist activities by any person, at any time and in any form," he said.

Supply-side structural reform

Xi also called for intensified efforts in supply-side structural reform on Friday.

The economy should be developed in a more effective, equitable and sustainable fashion and with higher quality.

China should foster an atmosphere in which the principles of innovation, coordination, green development, openness and sharing are upheld in order to expand economic power as well as overall national strength, he said.

Xi stressed that development is the top priority for the Party.

Global governance

The world order should be decided not by one country or a few, but by broad international agreement, said Xi.

"It's for the people of all countries to decide through consultations what international order and global governance systems can benefit the world and people of all nations," Xi said here at a rally marking the Party's 95th founding anniversary.

Xi said China will actively participate in the building of global governance system and strive to contribute Chinese wisdom to the improvement of global governance.

"China will work with people of all countries in the world to push the world order and global governance system toward a more just and reasonable direction," said Xi.

China advocates that people of all countries join together to change pressure into power, risks into opportunities, and replace confrontation with cooperation and monopolies with win-win deals, said Xi.
