Chinese President Xi Jinping has ordered the country’s Army to focus on improving its combat ability and to make sure it is always prepared for battle, the state-owned China Daily newspaper reported on Saturday.

Xi delivered an address on Friday to the Central Military Commission — under his control — and urged the troops to boost strategic and tactical planning as well as improve their joint operational capability and readiness to respond to emergencies, Efe news reported citing the newspaper.

The President’s comments came only two days after he refused to rule out the use of force against what he termed as foreign interventions and separatists in Taiwan, to ensure an eventual reunification with the island, which Beijing considers a rebel province.
