On January 1, 1979, with the approval of the Central Committee, the Central Military Commission issued an order appointing the commander of the Wuhan Military Region Yang Dezhi as the commander of the Kunming Military Region, the first secretary of the Kunming Military Region Party Committee; the commander of the Kunming Military Region Wang Bicheng was transferred to the commander of the Wuhan Military Region, Wuhan Military Region The second secretary of the party committee. The personnel changes in this swap have caused Wang Bicheng, who has been preparing for the Vietnam War for nearly two months, to leave the operational command position in the direction of Yunnan. The commander of the West Line was changed to Yang Dezhi.

On January 7, Yang Dezhi arrived in Kunming by plane and took up the job with Wang Bicheng. After Yang Dezhi and Wang Bicheng met, they said, "I have made suggestions to the Military Commission, or you are suitable." Wang Bicheng replied, "You are also familiar with the situation, or execute the order." The Kunming Military Region authorities immediately reported the readiness to the new commander. Since then, Yang Dezhi has officially been responsible for the self-defense counterattack command in the direction of Yunnan. A week later, Wang Bicheng left Kunming by plane to take office in Wuhan.

The battle for change, has always been a taboo for the military. The central decision-making level made such a seemingly unreasonable and unexpected arrangement at the dawn of the war. Not only did it cause some discussion and speculation within the military, but it also attracted the attention of foreign media.

On February 17, the Japanese Kyodo News reporter sent a telegraph from Beijing to Yang Dezhi as the Kunming Military Region. The commander made a review. Seeing first, according to the broadcast content of Yunnan Radio, which was confirmed in Beijing, the former commander of the Wuhan Military Region, Yang Dezhi, has served as the commander of the Kunming Military Region, which is currently on the front line of the Vietnam military struggle. According to official sources, Commander Yang continued to serve as the commander of the Wuhan Military Region last year. According to analysis, he was transferred to the commander of the Kunming Military Region in order to adapt to the changes in the military situation on the southern border.

Seeing the reference to relevant military experts, Yang Dezhi was the old Red Army who had participated in the 1927 autumn harvest uprising. In 1951, during the Korean War, as the commander, the 19th Corps participated in the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea. Since 1952, he has served as deputy commander of the Chinese People's Volunteers. Since the military merits, he was promoted to the commander of the Chinese People's Volunteers in 1954. The transfer to the front line commander in Yunnan shows that Yang Dezhi is an expert who can adapt to political border conflicts.

Another important reason for this transfer is that Yang Dezhi was a friendly representative during the anti-US aid period in 1967. The head of the regiment visited the north of Vietnam and inspected the military situation in Vietnam. In other words, this experience of Commander Yang Dezhi has given him considerable knowledge of the overall situation and tactical play of the Vietnamese army.

That is to say, the Japanese media believes that Yang Dezhi has deep qualifications, outstanding achievements, and is familiar with the situation of the Vietnamese army. He is the commander of the Kunming Military Region and is a very suitable candidate for commanding the Western Front against Vietnam.
