Hanoi (VNA) – National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan asked the Hanoi Capital High Command to build revolutionary, regular, seasoned and gradually modern armed forces during a working session in the capital city on December 18.

The session took place on the occasion of the 73rd founding anniversary of Vietnam People’s Army and the 28th anniversary of All People’s Defence Festival Day (December 22).

The NA leader lauded the Hanoi Capital High Command for contributing to common achievements of the Vietnam People’s Army, including ensuring absolute safety of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders’ Week this year.

She asked for continuing to fully grasp the Party policies and State laws on national defence-security, especially the Resolution on national defence-security tasks adopted by the 12th National Party Congress, the Politburo (10th tenure)’s Resolution on continuing to build centrally-run cities and provinces into strong defensive areas in the new situation, and the Resolution on national protection strategy in the new situation by the eighth plenum of the 11th Party Central Committee.

The Hanoi Capital High Command must improve the capacity of offering advices on building all people’s national defence, strengthen national defence-security and join in socio-economic development, she said.

She suggested further training officials and cadres in political thoughts and Party guidelines, staying alert to every event, and working closely with security forces to maintain political stability and social safety and order.

The top legislator requested that the Hanoi Capital High Command regularly pays attention to Party building, effectively implements the Resolution on Party building and rectification by the fourth plenum of the 12th Party Central Committee, drives back degradation in political thoughts, moral virtue and lifestyle and “self-evolution” and “self-transformation” behaviours in combination with spreading the campaign “Studying and following Ho Chi Minh’s thoughts, morals and lifestyle”.

She expressed her belief that under the leadership of the Party, the Central Military Commission and the municipal Party Committee, the city’s armed forces will build themselves into a trustworthy political unit and fighting forces loyal to the Party, deserving the trust of the Party, authorities and people of the capital city and nationwide.

Commander of the Hanoi Capital High Command Nguyen Doan Anh reported that the unit deployed 17,613 people and 1,176 vehicles to deal with 433 forest fires and disaster cases, fight dengue fever outbreaks and defuse bombs, mines and explosives left from the war this year, reported Commander of the Hanoi Capital High Command.-VNA
