Guarding Stability, Top Priority for Beijing’s Armed Police

Liu Qi, a Politburo member and the Communist Party’s chief of Beijing, watched the military exercises performed by the People’s Armed Police (PAP) in Beijing. Liu urged the PAP to “carefully study the situation and characteristics of maintaining stability in the capital, and vigorously step up training and readiness.” 

Liu pointed out a few “outstanding issues” in social harmony and “multiple factors” that affect stability. “Creating a stable environment to welcome the CCP’s 90th anniversary and ensuring a successful 18th National Congress of the CCP” are PAP’s top political priorities.
