The primary duty of the Tatmadaw is to defend the State, so the Tatmadaw members are to apply the military technology to secure the success in serving the interests of the State, said Vice-Chairman of the State Administration Council Deputy Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Commander-in-Chief (Army) Vice-Senior General Soe Win in meeting with Tatmadaw members and families in Khamaukgyi, Bokpyin and Kyunsu stations separately, yesterday.

The Vice-Senior General stressed that Tatmadaw members are preventing the destructive acts and dangers against the country round the clock while carrying out agriculture and livestock tasks in regiments and units to ensure food sufficiency.

If so, they will become the servicemen on whom the State, the people and the Tatmadaw rely.
