KANGAR – The Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Putra Faizuddin Jamalullail has appealed to the government to recognise the Territorial Army as a national voluntary organisation of the highest order.
According to him as the second line of defence, the Territorial Army played an important role and assumed a heavy responsibility which could not be compared with other voluntary organisations.
“The Territorial Army is required to back up the regular forces when needed besides providing intelligence support to the Malaysian Armed Forces.
“The Territorial Army is also responsible for the security of areas under their responsibilities such as villages, towns, districts and state,” he said at the opening of Regiment 504 Territorial Army volunteer training here Saturday.
Also present was the Raja Puan Muda of Perlis, Tuanku Hajah Lailatul Shahreen Akashah Khalil. – BERNAMA
