Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev said the election fully shows that the Chinese people highly endorse Xi's great contributions to safeguarding national interests. China will produce new achievements under Xi's leadership, and the two nations' comprehensive strategic partnership will continue its high-level development with joint efforts by both sides, he said.
Authorities are determined to capture and punish professional criminals who break into ancient graves and steal age-old treasures, as Zhang Yan reports.
Praising the Chinese people as "people with great dreams", Xi voiced his firm faith in realizing the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation.
"Cultural relics are not renewable and cannot be replicated. If they are destroyed, the country will lose precious items of historical significance," he said.
The Chinese people have been aware since ancient times that "we cannot sit idle and enjoy the fruits of others' work, and happiness can only be achieved through great endeavor", he said.
