Vietnam boosts cooperation with Korean agency

(VOV) - Vietnam hopes the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) will work closely with relevant Korean agencies to provide training courses for Vietnamese public security personnel.

Deputy Minister of Public Security Dang Van Hieu made the statement at a February 17 reception in Hanoi for Kim Sik Hyun, Deputy Resident Representative of KOICA Vietnam.

Deputy Minister Hieu said that the courses will focus on the prevention and control of international crime, crimes using high technology, drug prevention and control, criminal techniques, migration management, traffic operation, and the improvement in teaching the Korean language.

Hieu stated that the Vietnamese ministry spoke highly of the efforts and contributions made by the KOICA to organise training courses on crime prevention and fighting for Vietnamese police.
The cooperation aims to maintain security and order in each country, actively contributing to the strategic partnership between the two sides, he said.

Hieu underlined the need to accelerate the implementation of a project to build a library at the People’s Police Academy and cooperate on more projects.

He confirmed that the Vietnamese ministry will partner with the Korean relevant agencies to properly implement the signed agreements aiming to ensure the legitimate rights of Korean residents in Vietnam and help investors from the country.

In reply, the KOICA official pledged greater efforts to work with the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security in the fight against trans-national crimes to ensure security and order.
