Premier Li Keqiang has called upon the leading Party group of the State Council, China's cabinet, and various departments to keep their thoughts, politics and acts in line with the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core.

Li made the remarks on Friday at a meeting of the leading Party group of the State Council on following calls made at the sixth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee, which was held from Monday to Thursday.

Two documents, namely the norms of political life within the Party under the new situation and a regulation on intra-Party supervision, were approved at the session, which focused on the strict governance of the Party.

Li urged various State Council departments to strictly follow the Party's political discipline and regulations, improve supervision, resist corruption and withstand risks, and foster a team of civil servants that have firm beliefs, obey rules and are diligent and honest.

The State Council's leading Party group and various units under the cabinet were also told to become more aware of the need to uphold political integrity, keep in mind the bigger picture, follow the CPC as the core of the Chinese leadership and act consistently with CPC Central Committee policy.

They were also told to voluntarily conform to the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core in thoughts, politics and acts, and more resolutely safeguard the authority of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core," Li said.

Li's remarks echoed a call included in a communique released on Thursday after the four-day plenary session that all its members should "closely unite around the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core" and resolutely safeguard the authority of the CPC Central Committee and its central, unified leadership.

Li noted that identifying Xi as the core of the CPC Central Committee is of great significance to safeguarding the authority of the CPC Central Committee, the Party's unity and leadership as well as the Party and country's prosperity and long-term stability.
