“It is necessary to concentrate all thoughts and forces on preparing for war, ensuring a state of high combat readiness”, - the Chinese leader addressed to the Marine Corps of the People's Liberation Army of China (PLA).
According to the head of the People's Republic of China, "the Marine Corps is an elite unit that bears on its shoulders an extremely important task of protecting state sovereignty, security, territorial integrity, and the country's interests".
He called for increased efforts to advance the transformation of the corps and increase its combat capability in order to create a powerful army. Xi Jinping pointed out that the military "must be disciplined, guarantee absolute loyalty, disinterestedness and reliability".
Let us recall that earlier the American magazine The National Interest included the PLA in the top five in the world. At the same time, the PLA and the Russian Armed Forces have long been participating in several large-scale and complex joint exercises and are preparing for the possibility of conducting joint operations under certain conditions, and in the field of military-technical cooperation, they have moved from the supply of weapons to cooperation in its development and limited industrial cooperation.
