  BEIJING, July 31 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping has pledged a harsh strike against military corruption as the People's Liberation Army prepares for the 87th anniversary of its establishment on Friday.

  Xi, who heads the Central Military Commission, urged troops to strengthen their ties with the people and avoid undesirable work styles such as formalism, bureaucracy, hedonism and extravagance.

  The president made the remarks during a Wednesday visit to the headquarters of the military region of Fujian, where he worked for 17 years.

  Xi stressed the need for military to be loyal to the Communist Party, saying "the Party's absolute leadership over the army should be unswervingly adhered to."

  While addressing officers, he called for intensified drills to improve troops' fighting abilities and ensure they can win battles.
