Your congress has been very successful. I hope you will unite and serve as the core of leadership of the youth of China.
The Chinese Communist Party is the core of leadership of the whole Chinese people. Without this core, the cause of socialism cannot be victorious.
Your congress is a congress of unity and will exert a tremendous influence on young people throughout China. I extend my congratulations to you.
Unite, comrades, and fight resolutely and courageously for the great cause of socialism. Any word or deed at variance with socialism is completely wrong.
* Remarks by Comrade Mao Tsetung when he received the entire body of delegates to the Third National Congress of the New Democratic Youth League of China.
