The committee in charge of the former politician’s funeral informed that the measure is in force within the territory and the country’s diplomatic missions worldwide to “express the incomparable esteem and deep mourning” of the Communist Party of China (CPC), military institutions and the country’s ethnic groups.
During the mourning, the Chinese embassies, consulates, and liaison offices in Hong Kong and Macao will set up memorials to receive tributes from compatriots and other people.
According to the committee, headed by Premier Li Keqiang, China will not invite representatives of foreign governments or international prominent figures to Jiang’s funeral.
Jiang Zemin passed away at midday on Wednesday in Shanghai at the age of 96.
The official announcement of his death recalled him as an outstanding leader who enjoyed high prestige in the CPC, the military body, and the ethnic groups of China.
The Cuban Embassy in China extended its condolences to his family and friends, party authorities, the State, and the people.
It recalled Jiang’s visit to Havana in 1993 and the “Jose Marti” Order awarded to him by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.
