They also praised Jiang Zemin's contributions to the Party, the state and the army. Jiang's resignation is a contribution of historic significance to the institutionalization of succession.

During the 15 years at the post of CMC chairman, Jiang has built upon Mao Zedong's military thought, Deng Xiaoping's ideas on military construction. Jiang established his own ideas on national defense and military construction.

Hu is an experienced military leader and will control the overall situation, said the army men.
