Vice Secretary of the Party Committee of HCMC Nguyen Van Hieu recognized the difficulties and hardships that soldiers on DK1 rigs face when performing the task of protecting and preserving the Fatherland’s sovereignty over its sea and islands.
He expressed his thanks to the Party Committee and the High Command of Navy for organizing the trip visiting officers and soldiers of the Naval Regions 2 and 5, and local people on the southwestern islands.
The program aims to give a deep knowledge of the daily activities of soldiers and people on the islands to the city’s residents, raise the public’s awareness of sovereignty over seas and islands, and call people to participate in “For the sea and islands of the country – For the national front land” movement.
DK1 platform is a group of economic, scientific and technological service stations of Vietnam in the East Sea. The DK1/10 platform that was built in 1994 in Ca Mau Shoals off the southwest coast of Vietnam is one of the 15 DK1 platforms.
On this occasion, the HCMC’s delegation offered essential commodities and machinery valued at VND121 million, 20 scholarships to children of soldiers and 2,000 national flags to DK1/10.
