|China to build a strong army to ensure victories in any wars and against all threats.|
Military deputies to China's top legislature have vowed to build a strong army following top Chinese leader Xi Jinping's calls to that effect earlier in the week. On March 11, Xi urged the country's armed forces to be "absolutely loyal" to the Communist Party of China, sharpen fighting capacity and abide by disciplines as he joined a plenary meeting of a delegation from the People's Liberation Army (PLA) at the ongoing session of the 12th National People's Congress (NPC).
Chinese army parade starts in the celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, in central Beijing, capital of China, Oct. 1, 2009.
Xi, the newly-elected state president and chairman of the Central Military Commission, called on forces personnel to bring the country's defense and army building to new high.
