BEIJING, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has maintained overall social stability after a set of measures were taken this year, a senior official said Thursday.

The measures included a crackdown on terrorist activities, mobilization of the masses and strengthening of border control, according to Xu Hairong, Party secretary of Urumqi, the regional capital.

The crackdown targeted terrorism in its early stages, said Xu, a delegate to the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.

Thanks to the measures, the region has maintained overall social stability and harmony, he said.
