PM visits Military Zone 3
Also yesterday, Prime Minister Phúc applauded the Military Zone 3’s outstanding performance as an adviser to the local Party Committees and authorities on national defence.
At a meeting with officers and soldiers of Military Zone 3, which has been tasked with safeguarding security in Sông Hồng (Red River) Delta provinces, the PM also hailed the unit’s engagement in flood and storm prevention, and rescue operations. He urged Military Zone 3 to exert greater efforts to fulfill national construction and defence tasks.
The Party and State always take care of the army to help its defence performance at all times, he stressed. The Government leader requested Military Zone 3 to continue staying vigilant, co-ordinate with other relevant forces to promptly handle problems that may arise and combine socio-economic development with national defence.
In the same vein, the unit should work harder to improve training quality and pay more heed to mass mobilisation and civil defence force building. “The Government will do its best to create resources for the army, including Military Zone 3,” he pledged, voicing his belief that the unit would take the lead in national defence and fulfill all assigned tasks.
