Feeling the need of making Indian armed forces mere technology oriented, the Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today said that the government is committed to provide all support towards modernisation of the armed forces.

Addressing the Annual Unified Commanders’ Conference for Tri-Services Commanders in New Delhi, the minister said that there is a need to exercise financial prudence and optimise all available resources.

The defence minister told the top military brass that though the technology is important for modern warfare, it is ultimately the morale and motivation of our brave soldiers, sailors and Air Warriors which should be a major focus area for all the commanders.

Paying homage to all valiant Soldiers, Sailors and Air Warriors for their supreme sacrifice in honour of the nation,  Parrikar recommended the armed forces for their devotion to duty and the stellar role played by them in safeguarding the country’s unity and integrity.

Earlier, Chief of the Integrated Defence Staff to Chairman Chiefs of Staff Committee (CISC) Air Marshal PP Reddy presented a report covering major achievements on key tri- services issues.

During the daylong conference, key security issues facing the nation and important strategic, operational, logistical, administrative aspects pertaining to Tri-Services were deliberated upon.
