General Luo Yuan explained the mission of defense modernization from a strategic height. In his speech he stated the core interest of China and reviewed the great changes of China’s military construction in the past decade.
“We have just recently released Government White Paper on China’s peaceful development, the biggest highlight and the largest historical contribution of the White Paper was to clarify our core interests. There are three core elements of interest, inviolable, unchangeable, non-negotiable. No matter who violated China’s core interests, we must resolutely fight back.” Said General Luo Yuan.
