Dr Wee dedicates Warriors' Day wish to all frontliners

PETALING JAYA: On Warriors' Day, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong dedicated his wish to all frontliners in the country who have been the nation's first line of defence in the war against the Covid-19 pandemic.

He said that the sacrifice and deeds of the security forces personnel in upholding the country's peace and sovereignty must always be appreciated.

Dr Wee added that the harmonious life that Malaysians are enjoying today would not have been possible without them.

"But now, all personnel of the security forces - including healthcare workers - are our warriors on the front line in the war against the Covid-19 pandemic. Thank you to all frontliners who have sacrificed so much to serve the country. We are sure to win soon," he said in a Facebook post on Saturday (July 31).

July 31 is observed as Warriors' Day annually to mark the end of the 12-year Emergency in 1960 and to honour the deeds as well as contributions of the security forces personnel who fell in the defence of the nation's sovereignty.
