BEIJING, May 25 (Xinhua) -- The draft civil code submitted to the ongoing annual session of China's national legislature for deliberation represents a milestone in the country's advancement of the rule of law, according to a report.

Li Zhanshu, chairman of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, on Monday delivered the report on the committee's work to the third session of the 13th NPC.
