The minister’s office said on Thursday.

Earlier in April, the defence ministry unveiled a set of measures to improve service members’ living conditions, including a plan to raise the average daily meal cost, following a series of complaints over the quality of meals.

Yet questions were raised over whether such measures have properly taken place as soldiers continued to send photos of their poor meals to a Facebook account that serves as an anonymous bulletin board for service members.
