NAY PYI TAW April 24
Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, currently in the Russia Federation on a goodwill visit, met with Myanmar Tatmadaw officers attending post-graduate, doctoral and Doctor of Science courses in Russia at the ballroom of Radisson Collection Hotel in Moscow on April 23 afternoon.
The meeting was also attended by Lt-Gen Soe Htut and senior military officers from the Office of the Commander-in-Chief (Army), Myanmar Military Attaché (Army, Navy and Air) Commodore Kyaw Soe Moe and trainee officers from post-graduate, doctoral and Doctor of Science courses.
Speaking on the occasion, the Senior General said officers were sent to Russia to learn branches of study in science for the sake of their motherland. They need to effectively apply the subjects they have learned in the interest of the State and the Tatmadaw when they arrive back in their country. Soldiers must carry out their duties wherever are assigned although they may be from different fields for various reasons. During their study, they must study the subjects they are being taught until they become proficient and coordinate their knowledge and wisdom. There are many outstanding trainees who have obtained a Doctor of Science degree. Individuals are different depending on their hard work and respect for discipline and order. The trainees must learn not only the subjects they are being taught but also philosophy. They must try to progress more by coordinating the subjects they have been taught and philosophy. The Tatmadaw is providing assistance as much as it could. Studying abroad requires time, money and hard work. The trainees must learn steadfastly and try to effectively apply the experience they got at worksite in the interest of the State and the Tatmadaw. As they are studying abroad, they need to follow the rules and disciplines of the country concerned. The Senior General then urged the trainees to try to stay fit and not to do things that can harm their health as Russia has severe weather patterns.
Later, the Senior General presented food and cash awards to the trainee officers attending various universities in Russia through officer representatives. The Senior General then cordially greeted them.
