At a reception for Vietnamese Minister of Public Security Sen. Lieut. Gen. To Lam in Vientiane on January 27, the Lao leader highly valued cooperation outcomes between the two ministries over the past time.
For his part, Minister Lam said Vietnamese people in general and the police force in particular always keep in mind the valuable support of the Lao side in the past struggle for national liberation as well as the present cause of national defence and the country’s efforts to ensure social order and safety.
The Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security will do its utmost to promote the comprehensive cooperation with its Lao counterpart, meeting requirements and tasks in the new situation, in order to consolidate the special friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries, for the sake of the two countries’ people, and for peace, stability and development in the region and the world at large.
Lam called on the Lao leader to create favourable conditions for competent agencies of the two ministries to intensify their collaboration in fighting crimes and protecting national security and safety in each nation.
Earlier the same day, during their talks, Lam and his Lao counterpart Somkeo Silavong reviewed the close and effective cooperation between the two sides in 2017, including the celebration of the Vietnam-Laos Friendship and Solidarity Year.
They signed a cooperation plan for 2018, under which the two sides will maintain high-level meetings between leaders of the two ministries, partner with each other to fight hostile forces who aim to undermine the bilateral friendship, implement international agreements and treaties to which both are members, and consult and support each other at regional and international forums on crime combat.
