Xi Jinping: Anti-Corruption Remains Tough and Complicated

On January 14, 2014 at the third plenary session of the 18th Communist Party Central Commission for Discipline Inspection in Beijing, Xi Jinping acknowledged, “The breeding ground for corruption still exists and the anti-corruption situation remains tough and complicated.” 

“All Party members must fully understand the nature of the long-term, complicated, and arduous anti-corruption fight. With the determination to cure a disease with powerful drugs and the courage to scrape the poison off the bone and cut off one’s own snake-bitten wrist to save one’s life, [we must] resolutely carry on the campaign until the end to build a fine Party culture, keep its organizations clean, and fight against corruption.” 
“We will harshly disciple corrupt officials as we find them.”
