OUR COR­RE­SPON­DENT BEI­JING—A wide range of for­eign me­dia have paid close at­ten­tion to the tele­vised speech Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping made upon the 95th found­ing an­niver­sary of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC), es­pe­cially to the con­tents re­lated to Marx­ism, anti-corruption and ter­ri­to­rial sovereignty.

The Lon­don-based Fi­nan­cial Times fo­cused on Xi’s stress on the CPC’s con­tin­ued de­vo­tion to Marx­ism by quot­ing his re­marks of “The whole party should re­mem­ber, what we are build­ing is so­cial­ism with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics, not some other -ism,” in an ar­ti­cle on its web­site on Fri­day.

The ar­ti­cle, ti­tled “Xi Jin­ping pledges re­turn to Marx­ist roots for China’s Com­mu­nists,” also noted China’s firm stance on mar­itime dis­putes and Xi’s warn­ing against any threats to China’s se­cu­rity and Tai­wanese in­de­pen­dence. men­tal, guid­ing prin­ci­ple, or the party would lose its soul and di­rec­tion,” in a re­port Fri­day.

The news agency said that the ad­dress demon­strated the Chi­nese leader at­taches great im­por­tance to the re­in­force­ment of ide­o­log­i­cal dis­ci­pline and party rule. An­other key point picked up by for­eign me­dia’s re­ports was China’s anti-corruption cam­paign. Prais­ing the progress of China’s anti-corruption drive in the past three years, Xi vowed his speech to main­tain a ze­ro­tol­er­ance stance re­gard­ing corruption.

Reuters pointed out in a re­port that Xi’s ad­dress em­pha­sized the big­gest threat to the rul­ing CPC is corruption, and called Xi’s cam­paign against graft “sweep­ing.” in
