BEIJING, April 5 (Xinhua) -- China's Central Military Commission has issued a set of guidelines aimed at developing a comprehensive system upgrading military information security, a statement from the commission said Monday.
Approved by Hu Jintao, Chairman of the Central Military Commission, the Guidelines on Enhancing Military Information Security under New Situations set out an overall arrangement to advance military information security work by "tackling critical issues" facing China's armed forces.
Improvement of military information security is a requirement for the modernization of China's national defense and military buildup, said the guidelines.
