General Guo Boxiong: China’s Armed Forces Must Remain Absolutely Loyal and Reliable

General Guo Boxiong, Politburo member and Vice Chairman of the Communist Central Military Commission, stated that the entire armed forces “must resolutely follow the Party’s command and remain absolutely loyal and reliable.” Guo made the remarks at the University of National Defense. Guo urged increasing ideological education because of the fact that the Party has absolute leadership of the armed forces. This will “ensure that the armed forces, ideologically, politically, and in action maintain consistency with the Central Military Commission and resolutely follow the command of the Party Central Committee, the Central Military Commission, and Chairman Hu.”  He also stressed that efforts be made to "ensure high solidarity, security, and stability among the troops.”
