Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday ordered the armed police force to uphold the absolute leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Xi, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), made the remarks at a ceremony by the CMC to confer a flag on the armed police force.

At the ceremony, Xi conferred the flag on Commander Wang Ning and Political Commissar Zhu Shengling of the armed police.

The Chinese People's Armed Police Force has come under the command of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the Central Military Commission (CMC) from January 1, and was no longer listed under the State Council.

"This will help the armed police better carry out its missions in the new era and achieve efficient command," wrote a commentary on the People's Daily.
