BEIJING, July 1 (Xinhua) -- The Communist Party of China (CPC) should uphold Marxism and adapt Marxism both to China's conditions and to the current times and make it known to the general public, President Hu Jintao said Friday.

To take a scientific approach toward Marxism and use Marxism as an evolving theory to guide practice in new realities is essential for the CPC to preserve and develop its advanced nature as a Marxist political party, Hu said at a grand gathering celebrating the 90th founding anniversary of the CPC.

"We Chinese Communists believe that the basic tenets of Marxism are an irrefutable truth and that Marxism must be constantly enriched and developed as practice changes, and we never take Marxism as an empty, rigid, and stereotyped dogma," said Hu, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee.

In upholding Marxism under the new historical conditions, it is important to promptly address new issues emerging in practice and thus provide scientific guidance for practice, Hu said.
