As Shavkat Mirziyoyev noted, in today’s difficult times, when the world is increasingly exacerbated by threats of international terrorism, extremism, challenges of national and global security, our highest priority remains to increase the combat capability of the Armed Forces, strengthen their material and technical base, provide modern weapons, improve physical, spiritual and intellectual training of military personnel, strengthen their social protection.
A new Defense Doctrine has been developed, reflecting the firm position of the country in military-political issues. As a result of the ongoing cardinal reforms, the national army becomes mobile, compact and powerful, able to adequately repel any threat.
Increasing professional knowledge and skills, intellectual and psychological training, enhancing the spirit of patriotism of servicemen are extremely important in this process.
Mirziyoyev once again congratulated compatriots, courageous and brave defenders of the Motherland, wished them good health, family happiness, success in such a noble and responsible service.
