The Governor of Chinggeltei District, D.Ganbold, said at the event, “Delegates of the next generation have taken oath in front of Mongolia and its people. From now on, each and every pupil of the general education schools in Ulaanbaatar will take the “Oath of Patriots” with the purpose of raising the sincerity and care of Mongolian youth towards our mother country. From the morning of March 18, all pupils will take the “Oath of Patriots” every day before lessons begin.”

Delegates from military units, police departments, special forces organizations, veterans, cadets, high school pupils and officials all attended the event, which was also held to promote defense policy and activities.

At the event, twelve students who had reached 18 years of age were granted with military certificates and five pupils who earned the first five places in the “Spirit of Mongolian Soldiers” essay competition were given certificates and awards. Administrators of Chinggeltei District were granted promotions of rank to Chinggeltei District Police Department officials.

At the event, soldiers of Military Unit 032 marched in time to drummers from the Mongolian University of Defense. Later, artists from the Military Song and Dance Academic Ensemble performed a concert.
