Fight against cor­rup­tion never ends: Xi Jin­ping

Asian Journal - - Editorial -

Bei­jing: The fight against cor­rup­tion never ends and the gov­ern­ment’s zero tol­er­ance to cor­rup­tion will never change, Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping said on Tues­day. “Crack­ing down on cor­rup­tion is what all coun­tries must do and what their peo­ples wish to see. The ul­ti­mate pur­pose of China is to serve the peo­ple whole heart­edly,” Xin­hua news agency quoted Xi as say­ing in an in­ter­view ahead of his US visit. He left Bei­jing on Tues­day for a state visit at the in­vi­ta­tion of US Pres­i­dent Barack Obama. The Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) does not op­er­ate in a vac­uum, so it has un­avoid­ably found it­self with prob­lems of one kind or another, Xi said, adding that cor­rup­tion is just another per­sis­tent prob­lem.
