Senior Chinese officer urges military efforts to cope with security threats

China's top military officer Guo Boxiong on Thursday called for more efforts to enhance the country's military capacity to cope with security threats.

Priority should be given to upgrade the military capacity to fight an information-based, high-tech regional war and efforts should be made to enable troops to tackle various security threats, said the vice chairman of the Central Military Commission.

"More drills should be carried out under a complicated electromagnetic environment," he said during an inspection tour to the country's northern Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, where troops from the Beijing Military Area Command were undertaking a drill.

He also urged the troops to realize the importance of non-military missions and improve their mobility during those tasks.
