BEIJING, July 17 (Xinhua) -- Zhou Yongkang, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC), has called for confidence and more concrete methods to ensure social stability for the upcoming 18th National Congress of the CPC.

Stressing maintaining stability as the highest priority for the Party and government organizations at all levels, Zhou urged the government to coordinate the domestic and international situations while balancing reform, development and stability.

"Integrated measures should be adopted in order to solve issues that affect social stability from the sources," Zhou said, citing prevention efforts in various aspects such as improving people's livelihoods, scientific and democratic policy-making, just and clean-handed law enforcement as well as closer relations between officials and civilians.
