Xi urges Army to strategise information warfare

Chinese President Xi Jinping has said China will spur military innovation and called on the army to create a new strategy for ‘information warfare’ as the country embarks on military reform, state media said on Saturday.

Xi heads the Central Military Commission, which controls the 2.3-million-strong armed forces, the world’s largest, and is stepping up efforts to modernise forces that are projecting power across disputed waters in the East and South China Seas. During a meeting with the ruling Chinese Communist Party’s Politburo, Xi said China ‘must vigorously promote military innovation’ but warned it will be difficult.
