Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing met with officers, soldiers and families from Putao cantonment at Bandoola Hall, Putao cantonment, Kachin State, on 19 March.
At the meeting, the Senior General said that soldiers had joined the Tatmadaw out of their own free will to serve the nation. The duty of safeguarding the nation involves sacrificing lives and limbs, and personnel must be ready, whenever there is a requirement.
The political situations in the country have led to actions that created hatred towards the Tatmadaw. While striving to create political stability, attempts are being made to end ethnic armed conflicts. At the time when the Tatmadaw is attempting to achieve eternal peace and is marching towards democracy, problems cannot be solved with arms. The Tatmadaw personnel must work to defend the country and develop it, said the Senior General.
Also, the Tatmadaw Commander-in-Chief and his wife presented the Tatmadaw officers, soldiers and families with images of Buddha, bibles and food. The Senior General’s wife also presented the canton’s maternal and child welfare association with cash, while the officials distributed books, journals, sports equipment and food.
Similarly, the Tatmadaw Commander-in-Chief met with Putao town folks, ethnic nationals, departmental personnel, veterans and people’s militia members.
During the meeting, the Senior General said that transport was not difficult in Putao region during peacetime, but when peace and stability deteriorate, ways and means must be developed to ensure regional food sufficiency. In emergency situations, when road links are disrupted, the Tatmadaw will prioritize assistance. The agricultural land area in the region must be increased, and the yield should also be increased for regional food sufficiency. Emphasis should be placed on making the area free of drugs. Later, the Tatmadaw Commander-in-Chief distributed food and clothing.
In the afternoon, the Tatmadaw Commander-in-Chief visited the northern command agriculture and livestock breeding station and inspected the Novogen Brown egg-laying chickens, dairy cows and the preparation and usage of natural fertilizers (super bokashi).
