HA NOI (VNS)— Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong has asked the National Defence Academy to increase scientific research and military theory study.

The Party leader made the request at a ceremony to start the new school year at the academy in Ha Noi yesterday.

Apart from serving the teaching of the academy - a national training centre for high-ranking officers - the research should also contribute to building the country's revolutionary military theory and perfecting the Party's guidelines and policies, he said.

The Party leader highlighted the need to always pay due attention to national defence and security, saying the task requires even more vigilance in peacetime.

He described this task, as well as the upholding of social order, as the key mission of the Party and State of Viet Nam, including the People's Army and the People's Police.

Trong pointed out several fundamental tasks for the academy during the 2013-14 school year and beyond, including ceaselessly improving the quality of teaching by combining theory and practice.

The academy was also urged to more thoroughly grasp and actively develop the viewpoints of Marxism-Leninism, traditional culture and lessons learnt from the country's history of defending national independence.

The leader voiced his hope that the academy would utilise its strengths to expand international co-operation in training, lending a helping hand to Laos and Cambodia.
