Beijing warns on Zhao reaction

Story.Zhao.Deng.Afp From Beijing has warned against “anti-government forces” taking advantage of the death of former party chief to stir up trouble for the administration.

In an internal circular relayed last weekend to Chinese Communist Party (CCP) units nationwide, the leadership called on cadres and party members to raise their guard against efforts by “hostile foreign forces” and disaffected elements within the country to undermine socio-political stability in the weeks ahead.

Former party general secretary Zhao died on Monday at the age of 85.

Since early in the northern winter, President Hu Jintao and his aides have been working on ways to defuse any crisis that the long-anticipated demise of the popular Zhao might precipitate.
