China reshuffles military headquarters
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.
