President Xi Jinping has urged the reorganized organs of the Central Military Commission (CMC) to focus on winning wars as their central task.
Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the CMC, made the remarks on Monday when meeting with the new heads of the 15 organs, including a joint staff department, a discipline inspection commission and an audit office.
CMC organs must concentrate on the study of military affairs, wars and how to fight battles, and strengthen their awareness in preparing for war at any time, said Xi.
CMC organs must measure their work by the only fundamental standard of whether troops' fighting abilities can be improved, said Xi.
Xi urged the organs to lose no time in adapting to changes in its operational command system and building themselves into a smooth-running and effective joint command system.
He also urged the organs to initiate a "learning revolution," liberate their minds and enhance their study efforts on warfare readiness.
As part of the military overhaul, the new CMC organs have been reorganized from the PLA's previous four general headquarters.
