BEIJING: The ruling Communist Party of China today said it will adhere to policy of respecting religious freedom but will prevent "infiltration of overseas-based hostile forces" to make use of religion to subvert its rule.
Yu Zhengsheng, a Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, said the Party will adhere to its basic policy of respecting religious freedom.
"Only by implementing the policy can China withstand the infiltration of overseas-based hostile forces that make use of religion", state-run Xinhua news agency quoted him as saying during a meeting with leaders of major national religious groups in Beijing today.
The CPC's fundamental religious policy includes respecting religious freedom, administering religious affairs according to law, the principle of independence and self-governance as well as guiding religion to make it adapt to a socialist country, he said.
