News Releases

 

 

Under the dual premises of dealing with both the “right to know” and “national security,” the MND will, for non-classified national defense affairs, always conduct all matters in line with the principle of active release in order to explain major national defense policies, military activity and the PLA's motions which concern our (Taiwanese) nationals. As such, it can help to realize” the implementation principle on “transparency of national defense policies,” thus achieving the objective to foster a consensus on “all-out defense,” and settle the public down.

Visit of Media Reporters

The MND will, on its initiative, host regular and irregular visits, and coordinate or arrange domestic and overseas military correspondents to interview senior officers of the armed forces or pay visits to troops. In such a way, they can then verify the effects of streamlined and proficient training within the armed forces, helping to promote accurate cognition of our nationals to national defense, and coalescing defense consensus.

Response to News

With regard to major military news, the PLA' motions and incorrect news that would affect the morale of the general public, the MND will swiftly coordinate each of their related units to provide accurate and detailed information, and give explanations and clarifications actively.

 

Convening

Regular Press Conferences

At 10am of every Tuesday, the MND will invite military correspondents to attend the ministry's news conferences, while this office will focus on major policy implementation with regard to national defense, R & D in weapon systems, important events of exercises, significant effects of force build-up and combat readiness, as well as the PLA's motions that might affect the morale of the general public to carry out policy explanation and sit for press inquiry. Under the premise that classified national defense information won't be divulged, officers from each of the business units will be invited to address the press, and they will help to build up an accurate cognition for the general public regarding the force build-up and combat readiness.

 

Briefing on the Background of Military News

The MND will, in a timely manner, sponsor background elaboration on the implementation of major policy for national defense so as to realize the policy of “transparency on national defense policies,” and strive for support and approval from our (Taiwanese) nationals.
