Mr. Eimutis Misiunas expressed his belief that the visit would contribute to strengthening the traditional friendly relations and cooperation between Lithuania and Vietnam, as well as the close ties between the Lithuanian Ministry of Interior and Vietnam’s Ministry of Public Security.
General To Lam, for his part, emphasized that in recent years, the traditional friendship and cooperation between the two countries have increasingly developed in many fields, including the effective cooperation of the law enforcement sphere.
He said Vietnam wished to continue promoting cooperation in various fields, based on the two countries’ strengths and needs, and increasing exchanges of delegations at all levels, including exchanges between businesses and people of the two countries.
At the talks, the two Ministers exchanged with each other international issues of mutual concern as well as the security and order situation in each country. They also reviewed cooperation results in recent times and proposed measures to promote cooperation in the future.
The two sides agreed that the cooperation in immigration management and return of citizens is a new ‘bright spot’ in the overall bilateral cooperation between the two ministries. They vowed to continue increasing the sharing of information and experience in preventing and fighting crimes, especially high-tech crimes, drug-related crimes, human trafficking, financial crimes and environmental crimes.
The two sides also agreed to assign relevant agencies of the two ministries to draft, negotiate and sign cooperation deals on crime prevention and combat, on extradition, on transfer of sentenced persons, and on mutual legal assistance in criminal affairs while promoting cooperation in human resource development through training courses and seminars.
