To move forward, China needs to inherit and develop its traditions, especially virtues cherished by generations, Xi said.

The "socialist core values" that the country now upholds embody the thoughts of ancient masters, the aspirations of the nation's role models, ideals of revolutionary martyrs and expectation of all Chinese people, he said…

Xi and Beijing students
The Chinese Young Pioneers, the country's largest children's organization, should unite and educate children through organizing healthy activities. Meanwhile, society should provide a favorable environment for children to grow up in and prevent violation of their rights and damage to their physical and psychological health, Xi said.

He also called on Chinese children to study hard, follow suitable role models and develop themselves.

Xi's speech was received by several rounds of applause. After the meeting, students surrounded him, shaking his hand and having their picture taken with the country's leader.
