HCM CITY (VNS)— President Truong Tan Sang visited military units in HCM City and the southern province of Dong Nai yesterday on the occasion of the 39th anniversary of the liberation of southern Viet Nam (April 30, 1975-2014).

Visiting the Military Zone 7 High Command in HCM City, the State leader praised its excellent performance on tasks in past years. The unit has organised defence exercises under the instructions of the Ministry of National Defence while effectively implementing mass mobilisation and foreign relations work, he said.

However, he added that the unit faces challenges in preventing crimes and ensuring political stability and security in the country's economic hub.

Given the current regional and international context, President Sang said the unit should anticipate factors that could cause conflict in order to plan prompt responses.

He urged the zone to work with relevant localities to complete a border patrol route, thus protecting national border sovereignty. He also emphasised the need to take care of people living in border areas.

Earlier, President Sang also inspected combat readiness in the city's Gia Dinh Regiment and Artillery Brigade 75 in neighbouring Dong Nai province. — VNS
