sreeChinese President Xi Jinping is reportedly reshuffling the country’s top brass and calling on Beijing’s army chiefs to improve troops’ combat readiness so that they are able to “win a regional war.” “The headquarters of all PLA (People’s Liberation Army) forces should improve their combat readiness and sharpen their ability to win a regional war in the age of information technology,” Xi said at a meeting with the country’s military elite, China’s official Xinhua news agency reported. In an attempt to speed up the army’s reform, Xi is promoting two People’s Liberation Army (PLA) generals close to him, the South China Morning Post reported Monday. The move might help him achieve greater loyalty within the military forces, something he has also demanded from army chiefs.The headquarters of PLA forces must have absolute loyalty and firm faith in the Communist Party of China, guarantee a smooth chain of command and make sure all decisions from the central leadership are fully implemented,” Xi said.
