We believe that these things are major issues of prin

ciple. So every country has important principles, and we absolutely c

annot make concessions on such issues of principle,” the vice-premier said.

Liu, however, added that he hoped both sides would exhibit flexibility in the talks.

He refuted the criticism of the US side that China reneged on its promises in the draft trade text.

“We believe that it is only natural to have changes before a final deal; it is something that surely occurs in the process, so we

don’t think the Chinese side has back-walked,” he said, adding that he disagreed with the wording of “renege”.

“We just had differing views on how to phrase some things in t

he text, and we hope to resolve it, so it’s unnecessary to overreact to the issue,” he said.

He underlined the importance of properly mitigating

various social conflicts, and said efforts must be made to address legitimate and lawful concerns to safeguard public int

erests, and also guide the public in voicing their concerns in a law-based manner to maintain social order.

Strong pressure must be maintained to crack down on crimes such as organized gang activity, violent and terroristic cri

mes, as well as those related to fraud, robbery, food and drug safety, and environmental protection, Xi said.

Calling social fairness and justice a lifeline for judicial and law enforcement work, Xi called for improving the mec

hanism of the use of power in law enforcement as well as the supervision over such powers.

Efforts should be made to help the public feel fairness and justice in every case, Xi said.

He also urged public security staff to improve their work so that human rights can be guarant

eed while crime is fought, and fairness can be ensured while efficiency of law enforcement is pursued.
