NYINGCHI, Tibet, July 21 (Xinhua) -- Vice President Xi Jinping Thursday urged Tibetans to unswervingly follow the Communist Party of China (CPC) to build a brighter future.

Xi made the remarks as he visited the village of Bagyi in Nyingchi Prefecture of Tibet Autonomous Region, one leg of his tour in the plateau region for celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of its peaceful liberation.

Addressing the villagers, Xi said it was the socialist system, the correct leadership of the CPC, and the implementation of various preferential policies that led Tibetan people to their good life today.

"People of all ethnicities in Tibet need to understand that stability leads to prosperity and separatist activities lead to disasters," he said.

Xi visited Nyingchi 13 years ago when he was a senior official of southeastern Fujian Province.
