In the second quarter of this year, press and media agencies fully covered political events, important news and internal and external activities of Party, State and defense leaders. They paid attention to innovating communication methods and contents while improving the quality of the column on fighting manifestations of “peaceful evolution,” “self-evolution” and “self-transformation”.

Meanwhile, press and media agencies of military regions, services and border guard as well as magazines and journals have closely followed the guidelines of higher levels and successfully fulfilled their political missions.

Over the past three months, the military publishing houses, according to reports, have seriously followed the laws and regulations on publishing work. In the second quarter, all military publishing houses have published 251 books.
