Chinese president urges comprehensive efforts to build modern armed police [Xinhua]


To put into perspective, there are two faces to the police in China – The 1.5m strong paramilitary People’s Armed Police Force 中国人民武装警察部队 in olive green uniforms, and the domestic security agency Public Security Police (People’s Police) 公安部 in their blue uniforms. The police in question are the olive coloured People’s Armed Police Force, essentially the People’s Liberation Army with its domestic security function removed.

BEIJING, July 11 (Xinhua) — President Hu Jintao on Monday urged comprehensive efforts to push ahead the building of a modern armed police force and open up new prospects in the development of its capabilities.

Hu, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and also chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remarks when meeting with delegates to the second congress of the CPC members of the Chinese People’s Armed Police Force.

Hailing the congress’s convocation, Hu praised the the armed police for the great job it has done over the years in handling emergency incidents, fighting terrorism to safeguard social stability, and in disaster rescue and relief operations.

The armed police have been strictly following the orders from the CPC Central Committee, the State Council and the Central Military Commission and have withstood critical tests in completing various missions, Hu said.

Hu stressed that greater attention should be placed upon the political building of the force so as to ensure that it is always in the right political direction.

More input should be put into training the armed police to boost its efficiency and capabilities in fulfilling responsibilities and missions, he said.

Stressing that the armed police must be run strictly and in accordance with the law, Hu urged efforts to improve the armed police’s party building work and make it contribute more to China’s building of a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way.

Premier Wen Jiabao, Vice President Xi Jinping, and Zhou Yongkang, secretary of the CPC Central Committee’s Commission for Political and Legal Affairs, joined Hu in the meeting with the delegates.

    As CHINA having expanded its human rights
    an USA has stealthly removed human rights.

    Where once CHINA’s inhumanity widespread
    the finger now points unto USA governments
    whom no longer abide by international law as
    domestic law / where use defence of freedom
    the defence of democracy as a cover to carry
    out the most appalling of crime agin humanity.

    The CHINESE in having leared much from the
    USA (not how behave) but how not to behave
    be that in / military terms / financial or political.

    As a USA sinks into the mire /CHINA becomes
    thee leading player on the international stage.
