A senior Chinese military official on Wednesday called for enhanced counter-corruption efforts to build a clean army.

Xu Qiliang, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), was speaking at a CMC discipline inspection commission conference.

The military must be steadfast in their allegiance to the Communist Party of China (CPC) and follow the Party to win the final victory in the ongoing fight against corruption, said Xu.

Xu stressed that inspections must be motivated by the desire to build a strong army and upholding the CPC's absolute leadership over the army.

The military should root out any negative influence contaminating the armed forces after the ousting of Guo Boxiong and Xu Caihou, both former vice chairmen of the CMC, Xu said.

Xu urged military discipline inspection agencies to adhere to the CPC's goal of comprehensively and strictly governing the Party, better performing their duty of strengthening supervision as well as exposing discipline violations.
