New system said to result in more coordinated and combat-capable forces to efficiently respond to a crisis, but not targeted at any country
The Chinese military is to establish a joint operational command system “in due course”, with observers saying this will result in more-coordinated and combat-capable forces to efficiently respond to a crisis.
Setting up the system is a basic requirement in an era of information, and the military has launched successful pilot programmes in this regard, the Ministry of National Defense told China Daily on Thursday.
The remarks came shortly after a Japanese media report said China is considering reorganising its seven military regions into five.
