New general secretary of CPC knows military well

China's President Hu Jintao and Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the CPC Central Military Commission, have urged the Chinese army under the CPC's command to be absolutely loyal and accomplish its historic mission.

Hu and Xi addressed an enlarged meeting of the Central Military Commission on Friday, urging continuous efforts to build the army and to fulfill the goals shouldered by the military.

The just-concluded 18th National Congress of the CPC and the first plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee resulted in the formation of a new central leadership and the appointment of new members to the CPC Central Military Commission, Hu said at the meeting, which was presided over by Xi.

The leadership transition is conducive to the enduring peace and stability of the nation as well as the long-lasting development of its national defense, Hu said.

The president said Xi is a competent general secretary of the Party and a competent chairman of the CPC Central Military Commission.

Xi has experience working with the army. He was appointed vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission at the fifth plenary session of the 17th CPC Central Committee in October 2010, Hu noted.

The CPC Central Committee's decision to name Xi the chairman of the Central Military Commission is very appropriate, said Hu.

"Comrade Xi Jinping can, for sure, shoulder the great responsibilities of being chairman of the Central Military Commission while uniting and leading the commission to fulfill its great historic mission," he said.
