Hai Phong (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has 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 the Military Zone 3, which has been tasked with safeguarding security in Red River Delta provinces, on September 18, the PM also hailed the unit’s engagement in flood and storm prevention, and rescue operations.

He urged the Military Zone 3 to exert greater efforts to fulfill national construction and defence tasks in the new period.

The Party and State always pay attention to and take care of the army to help the military make the best defence performance at all time, he stressed.

The Government leader requested the Military Zone 3 to continue staying vigilant, coordinate 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 the rear work, mass mobilisation and civil defence forces building.

“The Government will make its best to create resources for the army, including the Military Zone 3,” he said, voicing his belief that the unit will take the lead in national defence and fulfill all assigned tasks.-VNA
