BEIJING, April 3 -- The People's Liberation Army(PLA) asked Party departments to play a bigger role in improving combat capacity, a document published by the PLA General Political Department said.

Communist Party of China (CPC) organs attached to the PLA have various missions ranging from ideological education, human resource management to discipline work.

They should work to 'forge the soul' of the armed forces and train 'a new generation of servicemen with soul, skill, personality and integrity', said the document which was reported on Friday's edition of PLA Daily.

The promotion and assessment of officers and soldiers should also reflect that priority so that servicemen will be encouraged to improve their own skills and capable ones will be promoted, it said.
