President Tsai Ing-wen has done a tour of military bases to thank Taiwan’s troops for
their service ahead of the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday. Tsai praised their contribution to Taiwan’s defense and their success in helping the country recover from disasters.
On Monday, President Tsai Ing-wen undertook a whirlwind tour of five military bases in the Taipei area. The president’s visit came just a week before the Mid-Autumn Festival. With the holiday approaching, Tsai offered the troops her support and her thanks.
At one base, Tsai thanked the troops for allowing the people of Taiwan to live and work in peace. She also praised the military’s disaster preparedness work and its rescue and recovery operations.
Tsai said that Taiwan’s soldiers have never let the people down in a disaster. She said that whether after this year’s earthquake in Hualien or more recent flooding, the presence of the military has given people peace of mind. [SOURCE]
