Chinese military forces have pledged to closely unite around the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, and vowed steadfast efforts on strict governance of the Party.
The Central Military Commission (CMC) has issued a circular urging the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and the armed police force to study and implement the spirit of the sixth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee.
The Party committees of the five theater commands agreed that the two key documents on the discipline of the Party approved at the session were new major moves on strengthening the Party building, which showcase the determination of the CPC Central Committee on strict Party governance.
Officers and soldiers of the PLA and the armed police force hailed Xi, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, as the core of the committee and the whole Party, citing achievements made since the 18th CPC National Congress in late 2012.
They promised to uphold the CPC's absolute leadership over the military, and build a stronger army through strengthening strict Party governance within the forces.
Departments of the CMC also pledged to strictly observe Party discipline and rules and to be "absolutely loyal, pure and reliable."
Enhancing Party building and governance is the key to coping with challenges under the new situation and developing the socialism with Chinese characteristics, according to opinions of the staff with military institutions.
