MR5 Party Committee leads the implementation of military and defence tasks

The 13th National Party Congress has determined that: Consolidating national defence and firmly defending the Fatherland are an important and regular task of the Party, the State, the political system and the entire people, in which the VPA is the core.

However, the security situations at sea and land border areas are seeing new complications; FULRO strengthens its propaganda, develops forces, incites and entices ethnic minorities to cross the border illegally; reactionary and extremist elements in religions tend to associate with each other to promote illegal religious practices,... posing new and increasingly high requirements for the task of defending the Fatherland in the new normal status. Faced with that situation, thoroughly grasping the line and policy of protecting the Fatherland determined by the 13th Congress of the Party, the MR5 Party Committee has determined to lead the implementation of military and defence work well, focusing on the following contents:
