Efforts should be made on advancing the rule of law to create a fair and orderly legal environment for the economy and development, and the legitimate rights of people in the areas with concentrations of ethnic minorities should be protected in the framework of the rule of law.

We will build a wall of bronze and iron for ethnic unity, social stability and national unity.

The tradition of all ethnic groups in the country breathing the same air and sharing the same fate should be handed down from generation to generation.

Everything possible will be done to accelerate the social and economic development of China's minority ethnic groups and the ethnic areas and to bring concrete benefits to people there.

More efforts are needed to build the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps into a stabilizer of the country's border areas, a melting pot that integrates various ethnic groups as well as a model region that showcases advanced productivity and culture.

The unification of the 56 ethnic groups into one nation is an invaluable treasure bestowed by our ancestors, and one of the country's great strengths.

The correct and Chinese way to solve ethnic issues must follow these principles:

upholding the leadership of the CPC;

persevering in the socialist path with Chinese characteristics;

safeguarding the unity of the country;

adhering to the principle of equality among all ethnic groups;

maintaining and improving the regional ethnic autonomy system;

insisting that all ethnic groups work together and achieve common prosperity;

practicing the rule of law;

enhancing communication and exchanges;

promoting harmonious and peaceful coexistence;

consolidating and developing socialist ethnic relations featuring equality, unity, mutual assistance, and harmony; and

achieving the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation together.
