Dec 25, 2018 Medical & Health Care Comments Off on Tsai gives the military three missions
President Tsai Ing-wen has given Taiwan's armed forces three missions to accomplish. Tsai made the statement at a commissioning ceremony on Tuesday.
Tsai said the first mission is practicality and innovation. She said the armed forces must be more innovative in build-up and deployment and more practical in training and management. She said that's because of China's military moves to weaken Taiwan's sovereignty and jeopardize regional peace and security.
Tsai said the second mission is to strengthen Taiwan's overall national defense. She said a multilevel deterrence strategy must be in place in peacetime so that non-military action cannot harm the country.
We are facing a new form of security threat. The threat is not just from conventional military action but also from diverse non-military measures. They include infiltration into all areas and the spread of false information. The [non-military measures] are aimed at dividing Taiwan, hurting military and public morale, undermining public confidence in the government, and even damaging our shared democratic values," said Tsai.
The third mission the president gave the military is to safeguard Taiwan. Tsai said the defense ministry should improve management so that each and every solider is determined to protect the country.
The ceremony on Tuesday also saw President Tsai promote her first female general during her tenure. Ku Li-tu of the Matsu Defense Command's Political Warfare section was promoted to major general.She became Taiwan's third active female general and the first woman to gain that rank since Tsai took office in May 2016.
