He asked the force to continue implementing the border management and protection tasks in a synchronous, drastic and effective fashion, in addition to accelerating communication to raise public awareness of the safeguarding of national border, finalising mechanisms, policies and the legal system on the national border and the border guard force, improving training quality and researching the application of achievements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the management and defence of the national border.
