NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc inspected training activities and the combat readiness of Naval Region 2’s Coastal Missile Brigade in the south-central province of Binh Thuan on April 19.

Writing in the brigade’s book of traditions, the Vietnamese PM expressed hope that officers and soldiers of the Coastal Missile Brigade will maintain strict discipline and high combat readiness so as to timely respond to every situation, thereby firmly safeguarding the Fatherland’s sacred marine sovereignty.

Set up in 2006, the Coastal Missile Brigade of Naval Region 2 is tasked with protecting the sea and island sovereignty and the southern continental shelf of Vietnam.

The brigade’s officers reported to the PO that it has taken measures to develop into a professional and modern brigade, adding that all officers and soldiers are ready to take on and fulfill any assigned task.

Cooperation with other military units and local authorities has also been enhanced to be ready in any circumstance. The brigade has made efforts to improve the leadership and combat capacity of its Party organisation.

Additionally, it has actively engaged in natural disaster prevention, search and rescue activities, and assisted local residents in coping with disaster consequences.
