DEFENCE services personnel must protect Myanmar’s three main national causes and the state constitution, said Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing to military staff and their families at Thandaung Station yesterday.
The senior general added that the successful holding of the 2015 multiparty democratic general election was a historical milestone in the history of the country and that the Tatmadaw, as the defence services are known in Myanmar, must learn from learn from their defeats.
He continued to say that it is necessary for defence services personnel to abide by the law, as no one is above the law, and that action will be taken against those who neglect the law. The senior general concluded by urging military personnel to protect the state constitution and the three main national causes in accordance with the Section 20 of the constitution. The three causes are: non-disintegration of the union; non-disintegration of national solidarity; and the perpetuation of sovereignty.
The senior general and his wife Daw Kyu Kyu Hla and other senior officers presented books, gifts, cash, sports gear and foodstuffs to defence services personnel and their families.
The commander-in-chief and his party visited the military hospital in the station and comforted patients there while Daw Kyu Kyu Hla conversed with family members of patients.
In the afternoon, the senior general met with members of the defence services at the Ayechanphyo Hall of the Southern Command, where he made a speech and distributed more gifts to military staff, along with his wife.
