FVEY partners issue warning of PRC recruitment efforts

On June 5, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) joined partners from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom in warning about continued efforts by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) to recruit current and former Western military personnel to train the PRC military.

“To overcome their shortcomings, China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been aggressively recruiting Western military talent to train their aviators, using private firms around the globe that conceal their PLA ties and offer recruits exorbitant salaries. Recent actions by Western governments have impacted these operations, but PLA recruitment efforts continue to evolve in response,” said NCSC Director Michael C. Casey. “Today’s joint bulletin by FVEY partners seeks to highlight this persistent threat and deter any current or former Western service members from actions that put their military colleagues at risk and erode our national security.”

The joint bulletin provides information on this threat, as well as indicators, impact, mitigation, and where to report incidents.
