Li, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks in an instruction on the country's fire prevention and control work.

Authorities at all levels should consolidate their responsibilities, enhance early warning and emergency response capabilities, prevent major forest and grassland fires, and minimize losses caused by fires, Li said.
