On an early-morning visit to the commission’s Joint Command Headquarters in Beijing, Xi, also chairman of the Central Military Commission, gave the instruction.

During the visit, it was announced that the president had become commander-in-chief of the CMC Joint Command Headquarters.

According to the China Daily, Xi told officers at the headquarters to concentrate on studying the art of command and operation and to build a professional and efficient joint command system.

He urged them to regard their positions at the headquarters as their combat positions on the battlefield, ordering them to effectively handle any kind of contingencies and to resolutely safeguard the country’s sovereignty, security and development interests.

Xi remarked that one of the major goals of the ongoing military reform is to strengthen the capabilities of the CMC Joint Command Headquarters. He stressed that headquarters officers must have a clear sense of crisis and improve their ability for “informationized warfare”.

He told senior commanders and officers, “We will take special measures to train professionals for joint operations … and speed up the development and deployment of advanced military technologies.”

The president wore a camouflage uniform during his visit, which was the first time a Chinese president had inspected a top military body in a combat uniform and the second time Xi had appeared in public in such a uniform.

Xi wore a camouflage uniform for the first time in January 2014 when he inspected a border defense regiment in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region.

Xu Liangcai, a senior officer at the Joint Staff Department under the People’s Liberation Army Southern Theater Command, said modern warfare features a high level of joint operation and sophisticated command, requiring a joint command system with good control of information and excellent precision in maneuvers.
