BEIJING - China's Central Military Commission (CMC) publicized a guideline promoting the construction of modernized command headquarters.

The guideline, which was approved by CMC Chairman Xi Jinping, said new command headquarters would enhance the military's operations.

The ability to command an army to win a regional war in the age of information is the goal of this new type of command headquarters, the guideline said.

The guideline urged all army units to listen to Xi's instructions, which focused on the establishment of a strong army that was fit to operate in the contemporary military environment.

Combat effectiveness was set as the unique, fundamental criteria.

It also urged all army units to strengthen and improve their political and ideological structure through Xi's instructions and to always focus on the Party's direct leadership of the military, which would ensure absolute loyalty, morality and reliability.

The guideline urged all army units to strengthen command measures, through the building of integrated platforms, networks, software and databases, and to establish a joint operation command model based on an "information system".
