BEIJING, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao on Wednesday called on the University of National Defense, or the top military academy in the country, to step up the cultivation of officers for commanding joint operations.

Hu said the university should push forward construction and reform in an all-around way and provide more intellectual support and talents for the effective fulfillment of the army's historic mission in the new century.

Hu, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), made the remarks in a meeting with the deputies attending the Fifth CPC Congress of the University of National Defense.

He also told the university to study and put into practice the guidelines of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 17th CPC Central Committee, which set China's development agenda for the next five years.

Vice President Xi Jinping, who was appointed CMC vice-chairman at the Fifth Plenary Session of the 17th CPC Central Committee that ended last Monday, joined Hu in meeting with the deputies.
