Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), vowed to unswervingly fight against corruption during a CPC disciplinary watchdog meeting on Tuesday.

Xi said anti-corruption efforts must be consistent and will never slacken.

"We must have the resolution to fight every corrupt phenomenon, punish every corrupt official and constantly eradicate the soil which breeds corruption, so as to earn people's trust with actual results," he said.

Xi made the vow during a speech at a plenary meeting of the CPC's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI).

Xi also stressed in his speech to fight corruption in a comprehensive way, address both its symptoms and root cause and combine punishment with prevention, with the emphasis on prevention.

He urged those who attended the meeting to unswervingly push forward the building of clean governance and the anti-corruption war.

"Power should be reined within the cage of regulations," said Xi as he ordered enhanced restraint and supervision on the use of power.

A disciplinary, prevention and guarantee mechanism should be set up to ensure that people do not dare to, are not able to or can not easily commit corruption, Xi said.

"We must not relax the use of penalties if we want to rule Party members strictly," he said.

Li Keqiang, Zhang Dejiang, Yu Zhengsheng, Liu Yunshan and Zhang Gaoli, members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, were present at the meeting.

Wang Qishan, secretary of the CCDI and also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, presided over Tuesday's meeting.

The CCDI's plenary session opened on Monday.
