The leader expressed his joy at prominent achievements of the region in 2019, saying he was impressed by creative drills and training programmes implemented by its units. He also urged the region to make more efforts to successfully complete its tasks in the time to come.

Military Region 9 should enhance inspection and patrol, aiming to ensure absolute safety in all activities during the upcoming Lunar New Year (Tet) festival, he said

Attention must be paid to promptly detecting all plots and sabotage activities by hostile and reactionary forces, thus firmly safeguarding the nation’s sovereignty, PM Phuc added.

Reporting to the Government leader, Lt. Gen. Nguyen Hoang Thuy, Commander of Military Region 9, said it has proactively advised the Central Military Commission and the Ministry of Defence to effectively handle situations related to defence and security.

High-level delegation exchanges between Military Region 9 and units of the Cambodian army were organised, the general said.

In the coming time, it will step up the building of the national defence posture in combination with people's security posture, and establish solid defensive areas, especially in localities, he said, adding information technology will be actively applied in training activities and drills at all levels.
