The exercise was divided into three stages, namely moving local armed forces to the combat readiness posture, making preparations for and conducting defensive operations.

It helped improve commanding capability and the combat readiness maintenance ability of local armed forces in carrying out military-defense missions.

In his remarks, General Truong underlined the leadership of the local Party committee, government, and relevant agencies during the event and asked the executors to thoroughly embrace the Party’s standpoints on building whole people’s defense posture and people’s warfare in combination with the firm whole people's security posture.

He stressed the need for participating units to learn from experience through the exercise and to further reinforce the building of the defensive area.
