Chinese leader Xi Jinping called on the army to comprehensively improve combat readiness, the official Chinese news agency Xinhua reported on Sunday, in a report on Xi’s recent inspection of a military unit in northeastern China.

Xi, general secretary of the Communist Party of China and chairman of the Central Military Commission, which reports to the Chinese military, praised the army and police for their help in dealing with the floods that hit the northeastern part of the country. country this summer.

During an inspection of the unit on Friday, Xi called on the army to raise the level of combat preparedness, enhance training and build new combat capabilities to effectively achieve the tasks set by the Party and the people.

Last year, during the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Xi ordered the acceleration of the modernization of the Chinese army to make it a “world-class” army. He also later called for enhancing real combat training and increasing combat readiness so that the army can fight and win wars.

In recent years, China has increased its military pressure on democratically governed Taiwan, which Beijing considers part of the People’s Republic of China. The Chinese military conducted exercises near the island this year in response to a meeting between Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen and US House Speaker Kevin McCarthy in California. According to Beijing, the training included precision strikes and a siege of the island.

Territorial disputes in the South China Sea, one of the potential flashpoints of a potential conflict, are also a source of tension. China considers almost the entire sea to be its own territory, which contradicts the claims of other countries in the region to individual parts of the water area.
