China's Communist Party says it wants to strengthen national security

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s Communist Party said it wants to strengthen national security capabilities, state media reported on Thursday.

The party’s leadership also said at a four-day meeting that it wants to develop defense capabilities in line with economic capabilities, according to a readout by state news agency Xinhua.

China should maintain “strategic composure” in the face of newly emerged international challenges and conflicts, the readout said.
