The Communist Party of China (CPC) has launched a campaign on Party history learning and education among all Party members.
Chinese President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, delivered an important speech on the campaign on Saturday.
The following are some highlights of Xi's speech:
-- History has fully proved that the state is the people, and the people are the state. The people's support is a life-and-death matter for the Party.
-- To better cope with the foreseeable and unforeseeable risks and challenges on the road ahead, we must look for inspiration from our past and draw experiences from history as our weapon to overcome hardships.
-- Taking a clear-cut political stand as well as safeguarding the Party's unity and solidarity are the CPC's lifelines and the key to its endeavor of building a large political party with a hundred-year history and making historic achievements.
-- The whole Party should unequivocally oppose historical nihilism, strengthen ideological guidance and theoretical perspicacity, get the fundamentals straight, and the basis consolidated. Enditem
