Zhou Yongkang: Enhance Stability Work in Beijing, Xinjiang, Tibet, and Other Key Areas

On July 17, 2012, China’s security tsar, Zhou Yongkang, the head of China’s Central Political and Legislative Committee, delivered a speech at the Television and Telephone Conference on Maintaining Nationwide Stability. Zhou stressed the importance of creating a safe, stable, and peaceful social environment for the successful opening of the CCP’s Eighteenth National People’s Congress. According to Zhou, maintaining stability is the primary responsibility of the Party committees and governments at all levels; stability work should be enhanced in the capital in Beijing, in Xinjiang, in Tibet, and in other key areas. “Try hard to solve conflicts in the local areas when they are at the very beginning stage and build up the first line of defense to maintain stability.”
