On Saturday morning, Premier Wen Jiabao visited the Zipingpu Dam on the Minjiang River - the Yangtze River's main tributary in Sichuan Province.
The dam is near the quake epicenter of Wenchuan County. But experts told the premier the evaluation shows Zipingpu is structurally stable and safe despite some minor damage.
Afterwards, Premier Wen flew to Wenchuan county. He checked on food supplies, drinking water and shelter, and reassured survivors.
Wen Jiabao said, "When you lost your relatives, we lost ours. Please don't be sad. Now let's work together to rebuild our homes. We'll prove in action that Chinese people cannot be defeated."
