BEIJING, March 6 (Xinhua) -- Uniformed deputies to China's national parliamentary session on Tuesday vowed to enhance Party leadership and speed up the modernization of the country's armed forces.

The armed forces should hold their loyalty to the Communist Party of China (CPC) and strictly follow its command, Chen Bingde, chief of the General Staff of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), said at a panel discussion of the PLA delegation during the annual session of the National People's Congress.

They should have good political awareness, pay attention to the overall situation and act in accordance with state interests, Chen said.

Director of the PLA General Political Department Li Jinai said at the same meeting that the armed forces should strictly obey orders from the CPC Central Committee, the Central Military Commission and its chairman, Hu Jintao.

The armed forces will improve political education among officers and soldiers and boost the development of CPC organs, he said.

During the discussion, Liao Xilong, director of the PLA General Logistics Department, pledged to create better combat, training and living conditions for servicepeople so that they can share the country's economic and social development.
