Envoys are required to implement policy of CPC Central Committee

President Xi Jinping called on China's diplomats to remain loyal to the Party and make contributions to the nation on Thursday.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remark while meeting with a group of several hundred representative Chinese diplomats who returned from abroad for the Foreign Ministry's annual meeting at the Great Hall of the People.

"Absolute loyalty to the Party, country and people is the root and spirit of diplomats," Xi said.

The diplomats should uphold the Four Consciousnesses — to enhance political integrity, develop a better understanding of the general picture, follow the core leadership of the CPC Central Committee and act consistently with CPC Central Committee policy, Xi said.

The president required the diplomats to firmly maintain the authority and unified leadership of the CPC Central Committee, resolutely implement the Party's diplomatic policy, safeguard national interests and esteem, and work to serve the people.

Xi fully recognized the country's diplomatic work in the past five years, and he told the diplomats to understand the spirit of the CPC's 19th National Congress.

On behalf of the CPC Central Committee, Xi extended sincere greetings to the country's diplomats. Since the Party's 18th National Congress in late 2012, the diplomats have overcome difficulties, safeguarded national sovereignty, safety and developmental interests, proactively participated in global governance and pushed the building of the Belt and Road, Xi said.

Noting that socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era, Xi said that it's essential for diplomats to understand the spirit of the CPC's 19th National Congress.

As long as the Chinese people stick to their goals and strive along the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, the country will definitely become more prosperous, Xi said.

The president encouraged the diplomats to stay true to their original aspirations, being creative and innovative, and make greater efforts for the development of the Party and the country.

The diplomats should press forward with building a community of a shared future for mankind, Xi said, adding that China's "friends circle" should be enlarged continuously through the diplomats' efforts.
