Stability in Tibet stressed over "sensitive time"


13:27, February 07, 2012

LHASA, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- The authorities of southwest China's Tibet autonomous region have stressed the efforts to maintain stability following a series of self-immolations in other Tibetan regions and the coming of a sensitive anniversary of past unrests.

In a televised conference, a top regional security official on Monday warned that maintaining stability at the moment is a utterly important but gravely challenging task.

Hao Peng, secretary of the Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Tibet Committee, ordered local officials to boost security patrol, keep high alert, enhance personnel management, and tighten the control of the society.

Hao also demanded increased security measures in Tibetan monasteries and addressing to the disputes and grudges which might upset stability.

"Officials should widely visit impoverished herding families and monks in the monasteries to help them solve problems and do good deeds for them," he said.

Hao stressed again the need for rapid economic development to solve the hard problems in maintaining stability.

Tibet has achieved remarkable progress over the past few decades. The region's gross domestic product (gdp) hit 60.5 billion yuan (9.68 billion U.S. dollars) last year, rising 12.6 percent from a year earlier.
