China reshuf­fles mil­i­tary head­quar­ters

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China has re­or­ga­nized its four mil­i­tary head­quar­ters — staff, pol­i­tics, lo­gis­tics and ar­ma­ments — into 15 new agen­cies un­der the Cen­tral Mil­i­tary Com­mis­sion (CMC).

Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping, also gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) Cen­tral Com­mit­tee and chair­man of the CMC, met with the new chiefs of each agency on Mon­day. He de­scribed the reshuf­fle as “a break­through” and “a cru­cial step” to­ward a stronger mil­i­tary.

Xi urged mil­i­tary lead­ers to unswerv­ingly fol­low the CPC’s ab­so­lute lead­er­ship over the armed forces. He stressed that mil­i­tary lead­ers must ad­here to the Party spirit, obey political dis­ci­pline, and “be po­lit­i­cally in­tel­li­gent,” with firm political faith and right political stance.
