BEIJING - Chinese President Xi Jinping has highlighted the role of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Daily, and called on the paper to play a leading role in strengthening the military and innovate in journalistic practice.

The PLA Daily must adhere to the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and serve the PLA, which is also under the CPC leadership, said Xi, who is also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC).

While visiting the paper's headquarters on Friday, Xi said the daily should uphold Party principles and "unswervingly" embrace the CPC leadership.

The president personally posted an update on the paper's Weibo account, wishing members of the armed forces a happy New Year and encouraging them to making new contributions to the Chinese dream and the dream of a stronger military.

Founded on Jan. 1, 1956, the paper is celebrating its 60th anniversary.

Xi urged the newspaper to strictly follow the leadership of CPC Central Committee, safeguard the authority of the CPC Central Committee and the CMC, and spread their voice.
