KIÊN GIANG – President Võ Văn Thưởng on January 20 visited and presented gifts to soldiers and people in Thổ Châu island commune in Phú Quốc City of Kiên Giang Province - the most remote island commune in the southwest of the country – on the threshold of the Tết (Lunar New Year). More than 200km away from the mainland, Thổ Châu holds an important strategic position in defence, security and marine economic development, and currently houses nearly 2,000 people living mainly on farming and seafood exploitation and processing. Visiting Regiment 152 of the Military Region 9, President Thưởng appreciated the unit’s achievements in defence and security work with the support of people and forces of Kiên Giang Province and Thổ Chau island commune. Visiting and presenting gifts to officers and soldiers of the Thổ Châu Border Guard Station, the State leader lauded their contributions to protecting border sovereignty and national territory. On this occasion, he offered incense at Thổ Châu Temple to commemorate martyrs who sacrificed for the country's independence and freedom and more than 500 innocent people murdered by the Khmer Rouge in 1975.
