President Hu Jintao, who is also the Chairman of the Central Military Commission, wants Chinese soldiers to adopt core military values.

The traditions include loyalty to country and its people, devotion to their career and upholding military glory.

Hu made the remarks in a recent meeting with senior military leaders in Beijing.

Those values should serve as a strong spiritual force for the soldiers to achieve all-round development and should guide them when implementing their missions, he said.

Hu added, soldiers should serve the people wholeheartedly and put people's interests above everything.
