Chinese President Xi Jinping has renewed the call for "decisive actions" against violent terrorist attacks, in the wake of a deadly explosion and knife-attack on Wednesday at a railway station in Urumqi, the capital of Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

Xi Jinping said the battle to combat violence and terrorism will not allow even a moment of slackness. He ordered all-out efforts to treat the injured, as well as a prompt investigation to solve the case and bring the perpetrators to justice. The president said the anti-separatism battle in Xinjiang is long-term, complicated and acute. He also called for ensuring social stability, and measures to safeguard people of all ethnic groups.

The rail station attack killed three people and injured 79 others, 4 of them are in critical condition. Police said a gang with knives struck at people, and set off the explosion at around 7:10 p.m. Beijing time, as a train was arriving from southwestern Chinese city Chengdu. The station resumed operation after two hours of the attack happened.
