HA NOI (VNS)— President Truong Tan Sang has asked the Ministry of Public Security to increase its officials' awareness of President Ho Chi Minh's teachings.

He made the request yesterday at a conference hosted by the Ministry's Party Central Committee to review the implementation of the Politburo's Directive 03 to continue studying and following President Ho Chi Minh's moral example.

Suitable mechanisms should be put in place to allow members of the public to supervise the interpretation of Ho Chi Minh's teachings by officials, he said.

Sang also underlined the gratitude the Party, State and people of Viet Nam had for the loyalty and sacrifices made by generations of public security officers during the revolution.

According to a report by Deputy Secretary of the Party Central Committee and Standing Deputy Minister of Public Security, Dang Van Hieu, the sector had made a number of important achievements in the three years since Directive 03 was issued.

Outstanding individuals had been recognised for their bravery and determination in the fight against crime, but 41 officers had been killed in the line of duty while 477 had been injured. Their work to ensure national security and maintain social order and safety as well as political stability had contributed to maintaining a peaceful environment for national development, the report said.

However, the report went on to outline some of the shortcomings that remained in the field, with some cases of officers violating regulations.

On the occasion, the President presented the "Hero of the People's Armed Forces" award to two public security agencies and a Military Exploit Order Second Class to General Tran Dai Quang, Minister of Public Security. — VNS
