Zhou Yongkang said in his speech that under the correct leadership of Hu Jintao as Secretary General, police work had centered around the goal of comprehensively building of a modest-prosperity society, firmly mastering and protecting the general requirements of important times of strategic opportunities. They solidified the leading ruling position of the party, protected the country’s lasting stability and peace, safeguarded the lives and work of the people in peace and contentment, and  served economic and social development, thus making outstanding contributions. A large number of heroic models and advanced collectives had emerged, who completed major security tasks, took part in natural disaster relief, carried out specialized actions, and broad ranks of police didn’t shrink from life-and-death situations, never gave up in the face of numerous difficulties and dangers, and dedicated blood, life, and sweat to write a great song of heroism that shook heaven and earth (感天动地).
周永康在大会上讲话,他说,党的十七大以来,在以胡锦涛同志为总书记的党中央正确领导下,全国公安机关紧紧围绕全面建设小康社会的总目标,牢牢把握维护重要战略机遇期社会稳定的总要求,为巩固党的执政地位、维护国家长治久安、保障人民安居乐业、服务经济社会发展作出了突出贡献。特别是在完成一系列重大安保任务、处置一系列重大突发事件、参与一系列重特大自然灾害抢险救援、开展一系列专项打击整治行动中,广大公安民警生死面前不退缩,千难万险不放弃,用鲜血、生命和汗水谱写了一曲曲感天动地的英雄赞歌,涌现出一大批英雄模范和先进集体。实践证明,公安队伍是一支忠诚可靠、能打硬仗的队伍,是一支正气浩荡、英雄辈出的队伍,不愧为坚强的共和国之盾。

Zhou Yongkang emphasized that this year is especially meaningful for our country’s development in that our Party will hold its 18th National Congress. Creating a harmonious and stable environment for this a victorious event was the public security organs’ primary task. Public security organs on all levels needed to clearly understand the complicated nature of the current international and domestic situation and the particular importance of maintaining stability this year, and with the meeting with Secretary General Hu Jintao and other central comrade-leaders as a collectively motivating force, they should improve their abilities to combat crime, to serve the people, and to protect national security and social stability.

Note

*) A number of reports have recently suggested that Meng Jianzhu had effectively taken control of what had previously been Zhou Yongkang‘s central responsibilities. However, it should be noted that Zhou Yongkang’s downfall has been anticipated in the foreign press for many weeks, and the sources seem to be anonymous, for obvious reasons. Without official confirmation, or with obvious shifts in “public-security” policies, I don’t see a lot of evidence for Zhou “falling from power”, but it might be plausible that he wouldn’t involved in investigating the cases of Bo Xilai and Gu Kailai. That alone, if true, would suggest quite a loss of control, and possibly the beginning of the end to his career.

  1. The most interesting news recently about Zhou Yongkong is that he flew all the way to Xinjiang to be elected a deputy for the upcoming 18th Party Congress. He used to be a Henan delegate. No expert on Chinese politics can explain this bazarre arrangement. But rumours say he lost his Henan seat in a provincial election. Regardless of whether the rumour is true or not, the implication is that he’ll have to spend his retirement years in exile in the remote Xinjiang. Or perhaps he chooses to do so as he really loves his lamb kebabs …..
