Chinese President Hu Jintao said here on Saturday that he is confident that Beijing and China will deliver a high-standard Paralympic Games with distinctive features.

"We have set the goal of 'two Games with equal splendor' and, guided by the concept of 'transcendence, integration and equality,' made the utmost effort in the preparation for the Games," said Hu at a welcoming luncheon of the Beijing Paralympic Games.

"Since the 1960s when the first Paralympic Games was held and thanks to the concerted efforts of the international community, the Paralympic Games has become an important cultural and sports event that helps enhance mutual understanding and friendship among the people and promote human civilization," Hu said while proposing a toast.

Over 4,000 athletes from more than 140 countries and regions will participate in the Beijing Paralympic Games. This fully demonstrates the global care and support for sports for people with a disability, Hu said.

"Spirit in Motion" is the motto of the Paralympic Movement. By participating in the Games, Paralympians from around the world display self-esteem, self-confidence, self-improvement and self-support. They share joy, forge friendships, realize dreams and experience success. They challenge themselves and bring out the value of life, said the Chinese leader.

The Paralympic Movement inspires people with and without a disability to interact in the same global family, enjoy equal rights in the society and build a harmonious world together, he said.
