BEIJING - The overall situation in Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region remains stable and controllable despite terror attacks, a senior official said Tuesday.

"Violent terror attacks have provoked strong condemnation and opposition in the region," said Shohrat Zakir, chairman of the Xinjiang regional government, at a panel discussion during the ongoing annual session of the National People's Congress, the country's top legislature.

With concerted efforts of people from all ethnic groups, violent terrorist crimes were cracked down resolutely in accordance with the law and the sanctity of law was safeguarded, he said.
