MPS - General To Lam, Minister of Public Security, on February 19 hosted the reception for Chinese State Councilor and Minister of Public Security Zhao Kezhi, who is on a Vietnam visit.

After the reception, the two ministers chair the 7th meeting on crime prevention and fight.

The meeting is an important event in bilateral ties, which helps promote the comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership between the two countries in the field of national security, crime prevention and combat and protection of social order and safety.

The two ministers review the Public Security Guard of Honor.

This is also an opportunity for both sides to evaluate the results of cooperative agreements between the two ministries since the previous meeting in Beijing in October 2018, and map out measures to promote cooperation to 2022.

Minister To Lam speaks at the event.

Over the past two years, on the foundation of the comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership between the two Parties and States, the partnership between the two Public Security Ministries (MPS) has been enhanced in many aspects such as the exchange of delegation and professional information and personnel training.

The two sides have coordinated closely in combating crimes, especially drug-related, high-tech and economic crimes, and collaborated in capturing wanted criminals, managing entries and exits, contributing to ensuring political security as well as social order and safety in each country, especially along the shared border.

Functional forces of both sides have worked together in cracking down drug-related crimes right from the border areas and border gates. The two sides have conducted four raids against drug-related crimes, especially trans-national cases, since 2018 while completing coordination mechanisms on joint investigation in drug-related cases.

The two ministers sign the agreement.

The MPS of Vietnam has supported the Chinese counterpart in investigating many high-tech cases involving Chinese nationals operating in Vietnam, as well as in arresting and handing over the criminals to the Chinese side.

The two sides also have collaborated in combating human trafficking cases, especially the trafficking of Vietnamese women to China, and rescued many Vietnamese victims.

At this meeting, the two ministers signed an agreement on measures to improve collaboration efficiency in protecting domestic security in each country and the efficiency of cooperation in crime prevention and control in the future, focusing on holding crackdowns on trans-national crimes such as terrorism, high-tech, human trafficking and drug-related crimes.
