Earlier this week, the Chinese president had said western countries, led by the US, have carried out all-around suppression, which brought unprecedented and severe challenges to China's development.
Chinese President Xi Jinping recently called for quickly elevating the country’s armed forces to world-class standards amid escalating tensions with the US. Jinping stressed that for the Chinese military to win wars, it needs to enhance its integrated national strategies and strategic capabilities.
Xi, who heads the Chinese military besides the ruling Communist Party and the presidency, made this statement on Wednesday, March 8, during a meeting of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) delegates at the annual parliament session in Beijing.
According to the Chinese president, consolidating and enhancing integrated national strategies and strategic capabilities have a profound significance in building a modern socialist country, as well as in achieving the goals for the centenary of PLA in 2027 and quickly elevating the armed forces to world-class standards. The message, some say, seems like a subtle tout at US President Joe Biden.
