Morales Calls on Soldiers to Defend Unity

Cochabamba, Bolivia, Aug 21 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian President Evo Morales called on members of the armed forces to defend national unity, which is the core of the current process of changes.

In a ceremony on occasion of the 108th anniversary of the Maximiliano Paredes Sergeant School in Cochabamba, Morales said a demonstration of this objective was the active role played by the soldiers in hydrocarbon nationalization.

He explained that since January 2006, the Executive has emphasized on strategies to dignify the Bolivian people, including the attention to the needs of military institutions.

The president called on graduates to be examples of dedication to the defense of the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Morales also announced the approval of investments worth $600 million to construct new facilities for sergeant training, including an entity in Cochabamba to protect the future seat of the South American Parliament.

To work in coordination with commanders, thinking about the homeland above all, is the best piece of advice we should give on a day like this.
