Zhou Yongkang Meets Chinese Police Officers With Hu, Wen, Xi

May 18 (Bloomberg) -- Zhou Yongkang, China’s top internal security official, met with “model” police officers from around the nation in Beijing today together with President Hu Jintao, Premier Wen Jiabao and Vice President Xi Jinping, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

Zhou, speaking at the meeting, said that public security agencies nationwide and most police officers understand the complexity of current domestic and international situations, as well as the “special importance” of maintaining social stability this year, according to Xinhua. China is preparing for a once-in-a-decade leadership transition later this year.

Xinhua’s account of the meeting today follows a May 13 report by the Financial Times that Zhou’s power was curbed because of his alleged lobbying on behalf of ousted Politburo member Bo Xilai. Bo, who had been a candidate for promotion to the China’s top decision making body, was suspended from the Politburo amid allegations his wife was involved in the murder of U.K. citizen Neil Heywood.
