Talking to the troops in Luena Military Instruction Centre parade, Gen. Gouveia João de Sá Miranda affirmed that regardless of the problems the country is facing "to the military, the homeland defence comes above all".

To the general-officer, it is up to Angolans to work to improve the social and economic conditions of the country and sort out the problems that might appear.

While delivering the speech, the Army chief defended the boosting of sports practice within the armed forces and manifested the need to strengthen military discipline, organization and hygiene levels.

Meanwhile, during his assessment visit, last Monday, the Army commander met with members of the East Military Region (RML) and visited the Luena Military Instruction Centre facilities.

Gouveia João de Sá Miranda ends this Wednesday the visit to RML.
