At the meeting, Lieutenant General Tran Van Ve affirmed that Viet Nam highly appreciated and considered the foundation of the UN police force as a strategic and effective initiative in an effort to ease conflict and crisis. This mechanism with the role of the United Nations Police can help address threats of transnational crimes. Vietnam’s police strongly support and hope that this mechanism will continue to be maintained and developed.

In order to further enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the UN Police’s operation, Lieutenant General Tran Van Ve suggested strengthening cooperation between the UN Police and other international police organizations, including the Interpol, Europol or ASEANAPOL, as well as other international anti-crime cooperation mechanisms, to promote information sharing and combat operations coordination.

In addition, police forces of member countries should study and recommend putting contents of the ‘‘Crteria of Policy Framework’’ of the UN Police in their own legal frameworks to match with the operational regulations of the UN Police for further efficiency of joint operations.
