Guanzhou: Fan Chang­long, vice chair­man of the Cen­tral Mil­i­tary Com­mis­sion (CMC), has called for troops to be ready for com­bat and for im­prove­ments to equip­ment and lo­gis­ti­cal prepa­ra­tion. Fan made the re­marks, which were car­ried in a state­ment re­leased on Tues­day, in an re­cent in­spec­tion tour of the South­ern Theater Com­mand.

Of­fi­cers and sol­diers need to be aware of cur­rent threats to China’s sovereignty, se­cu­rity and in­ter­ests, he said, urg­ing the mil­i­tary to re­search com­bat meth­ods and strate­gies per­ti­nent to dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions and foster spe­cial forces re­served for key mis­sions and sce­nar­ios. “Air and sea pa­trols should be tightly or­gan­ised to han­dle all kinds of emer­gen­cies and safe­guard air and sea se­cu­rity in bor­der ar­eas,” Mr Fan said.

He also called for strength­ened lead­er­ship to root out cor­rup­tion.
