The People's Liberation Army's Eastern Theater Command has recently carried out combat exercises in the Taiwan Straits and surrounding waters to verify and boost its interservice joint operation capability, a military spokesman said.
The 29th joint patrol in the Beibu Gulf, conducted recently by the Chinese PLA Southern Theater Command and the Vietnam People's Navy according to relevant agreements and routine annual plans between the Chinese and Vietnamese armed forces, wrapped up successfully.
Even in midsummer, it was still cold in the plateau hinterland of west China at an altitude of over 4,300 meters. Conducting drills regularly on the plateau has not only increased the difficulty and intensity of training subjects, but also expanded the scope and breadth of integration.
Military forces in Beijing will no longer provide paid services including medical treatment, education, scientific research, warehousing, publishing, and literature and art related services and products to civilians.
