BEIJING, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- Vice President Xi Jinping on Friday visited a group of people living with HIV/AIDS in Beijing, urging society to abandon discrimination against such groups and "to light their life with love."

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, talked to HIV carriers, doctors and anti-AIDS volunteers at a community clinic in south Beijing on the eve of World AIDS Day.

He shook hands with HIV carriers and learnt about the progress in drug treatment and counseling service they have received.

"HIV/AIDS is not terrible in itself, but what is really dreadful is the ignorance on HIV/AIDS and the prejudice against AIDS patients," said Xi.
