BEIJING, July 1 (Xinhua) -- Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, has called for more achievements in the Party's theoretical innovation.

Presiding over a group study session of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee on Friday, Xi said the understanding of the Party's theoretical innovation must be continuously deepened.

It is the solemn historical responsibility of today's Chinese Communists to open new frontiers in adapting Marxism to the Chinese context and the needs of the times, Xi said.

The fundamental reason why the CPC has been able to lead the people to accomplish arduous tasks, which were inconceivable for any other political force in China, is that it has mastered the scientific theory of Marxism and constantly promoted theoretical innovation in light of new realities, Xi said.

At the fundamental level, the success of the CPC and socialism with Chinese characteristics should be attributed to the fact that Marxism works, particularly when it is adapted to the Chinese context and the needs of the times, he noted.

The soul of Marxism and the root of China's fine traditional culture must never be abandoned, as doing so would lead to catastrophic mistakes, Xi said.

It is crucial to deeply integrate the remarkable spirit and profound wisdom of the Chinese nation into Marxism in order to achieve new theoretical advantages and scale new intellectual heights, he said.

Xi highlighted the importance of drawing inspiration, with an open mind, from all of human civilization's outstanding achievements.
