BEIJING, March 10 (Xinhua) -- China's political advisor Yu Zhengsheng on Monday stressed adherence to the "rule of law" in Tibet.
Yu, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, made the remarks while taking part in a panel discussion with deputies from Tibet Autonomous Region during the annual session of the National People's Congress.
Yu said that strengthening the frontier region is key to governing a country, and maintaining stability in Tibet is a prerequisite of strengthening the frontier region.
He asked authorities to follow the principle of "rule of law" in governing Tibet, take measures to win local people's hearts and make Tibet's development an enduring task.
Efforts should be made to help local officials and people get a clear understanding of the nature and danger of the Dalai Lama's preaching of the "middle way" and "high-degree autonomy," he said.
Yu also asked for concrete measures to advance Tibet's economic and comprehensive development, improve people's well-being and ensure long-term peace and stability in Tibet.
