Xu Caihou urges troops to consolidate political ideology

Vice Chairman of China’s Central Military Commission Xu Caihou has urged troops to consolidate political ideology and improve awareness of guarding national unity and stability during an inspection of forces based in Xinjiang region.

According to an official statement Xinhua received Wednesday, Xu said in his undated tour that all levels of the troops should resolutely follow instructions from the central authorities throughout their efforts.

“(The troops) should actively adapt to the emerging situation, new tasks and demands, closely focus on the theme of national defense and military building, and step up ideological and political construction,” Xu said.

Xu said the military should strive to make excellent achievements in all work, so as to better greet the 18th national congress of the Communist Party of China, which is set to be held later this year.
