BEIJING, April 25, (ChinaMil) -- Xu Qiliang, member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and vice chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), recently carried out investigation and study in the troop units of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) stationed in southwest China's Yunnan province.

During the tour, Xu Qiliang pointed out that it is imperative to persist in putting national sovereignty and security first, firmly foster the idea of "maintaining an army for a thousand days in a bid to use it for a thousand days" and perform combat readiness duties in a down-to-earth way, so as to ensure safety and stability of border areas.

He also said it is necessary to actively develop weaponry and equipment that can meet the requirements for completing missions by frontier defense troops, and provide strong personnel and equipment support for garrisoning and stabilizing border areas. Meanwhile, each officer or men on duty should serve as a border guard and envoy of good neighborly and friendly relations, and play a positive role in garrisoning and stabilizing border areas.
