XI'AN, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has pledged that the government will care for the most impoverished people and let them feel warmth of society.

The premier made the remarks during a tour of two of the most deprived regions in the northwestern province of Shaanxi and the provincial capital Xi'an.

As the nation's most important traditional festival draws near, the premier extended his best wishes to the people.

On Li's three-day schedule from Jan. 26 to 28, he made visits to migrant workers' families, assistance stations for homeless children and elders, new apartments housing relocated residents, and an embroidery company providing training for women.

Shangluo and Ankang, the two poverty-stricken destinations on Li's tour in the province, are located in mountainous regions and home to 1.5 million people with very low standards of living.

On his train trip to the two regions, he said that the country will wage a war against poverty with a stronger resolve and prevent it from afflicting future generations.
