China Army Called On To Keep Order On Anniversary

From AP:

China’s military celebrated its 82nd anniversary Saturday, with an editorial in the official paper calling on the armed forces to maintain social stability in the wake of unrest on the fringes of its territory.

The People’s Liberation Army, the world’s largest with 2.3 million members, should strengthen coordination with local governments to prepare to deal with all kinds of “unexpected” incidents, a front-page editorial in the official People’s Liberation Daily said.

“We must closely pay attention to developments in the domestic and international situation … and firmly oppose all violent criminal activities and attempts to split the country,” it said.
