|The working session between the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and its Lao counterpart on July 11
The consensus was reached during a working session between representatives of the two ministries’ general politics departments in Hanoi. Accordingly, the two sides will maintain cooperation in personnel training and the sharing of experience in combating crime and ensuring security in border areas.
At the same time, they will launch more Vietnamese-Lao cultural and historical events, along with sports activities and international volunteer programmes. They also expressed hope to improve their already fruitful relationships for members of the youth, women, and trade unions.
Speaking at the working session, Major General Nguyen Hai Trung, head of the General Department of Politics under the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security, highlighted the enhanced cooperation between the ministries and these organisations.
He added that the two ministries’ young officers along the common border line have joined hands in various volunteer programmes, helping to improve people’s living standards and combat against cross-border crime.
Trung also stressed the close collaboration between youth and women’s unions which, he said, has significantly contributed to national security, social safety and order, integration, and socio-economic development in each nation.
