Chairwoman of the National Assembly (NA) Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan held a working session on December 21 in the central city of Da Nang with the High Command of Military Zone 5, which covers the strategic area of central and Central Highlands provinces, reported Vietnam News Agency.

The area faced six successive storms and tropical depressions this year and hundreds of thousands of personnel from the local armed force were mobilised on search and rescue operations, repairing damaged local facilities and conducting sanitation work, she said.

She recommended the military zone strengthen its forces and pay due regard to political education for its personnel.

The official ordered the enhancement of the protection of internal politics and the Party’s ideological foundation, to effectively combat “peaceful evolution” plots by hostile forces and to offer prompt advice to localities and sectors in addressing complex issues.

Ngan asked the military zone to join hands with local Party Committees and authorities to consolidate national defence, particularly at sea, on islands, and in border areas.

She said it should remain attentive to reinforcing national solidarity via the socio-economic and cultural development of remote locations and areas inhabited by ethnic minorities.

Ngan also highlighted other key tasks, such as mass mobilisation, poverty reduction, and developing economic-defence zones.

Earlier on the same day, Ngan and her entourage visited and presented gifts to Heroic Mother Trinh Thi Thin and Hero of the People’s Armed Forces Le Hai Ly in Da Nang./.
