Kuala Lumpur: Army Commander, General Tan Sri Zamrose Mohd. Zain said that the army is alway ready to defend the country’s sovereignty and channel aid to other security forces despite being seen as the ‘last bastion’ of the country.
“Our real job is in conventional warfare. We as ‘reserve players’ that we ourselves do not know when it is needed. But we are also the last line that determines whether our country is safe or not” he said.
He further added that every officer and member of the Army must be skilled in performing the task as well as assisting other security agencies.
The parade, which was joined by 12 officers and 227 members from 1 RRD, also held various demonstrations including the Riot Dispersal Parade (POPO) which was formulated to help the authorities disperse the riots and restore peace.
