China faces major as well as potentially minor security threats, and given the complicated international situation, the security environment in its neighborhood cannot be said to be satisfactory. This calls for further reform of the military, without which China cannot safeguard its national security.

The reform of China's military is also necessary to keep pace with the military buildup across the world and to eradicate the force of bad elements, especially senior officers, that have indulged in corruption and pomposity and thus lowered the morale of patriots.

An armed force's main responsibility is to safeguard a country's national security and defend its territorial integrity against attacks. With such a perception in mind, China's leadership headed by President Xi Jinping has accorded the highest priority to military reforms. The reforms are also expected to improve national governance.
