HA NOI (VNS) — Minister of Public Security General Tran Dai Quang and visiting Malaysian Minister of Home Affairs Dato' Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi held a working session in Ha Noi yesterday.

During the session, they agreed to continue enhancing collaboration in security and police work and alternately organising annual deputy-ministerial level meetings. They will also start working on agreements on extradition and the transfer of sentenced persons.

The signing of a MoU on co-operation to prevent transnational crimes is expected to be completed later this year.

Minister Quang highly valued the Malaysian high-ranking delegation's visit to Viet Nam, describing it as an important milestone in co-operation that contributed to deepening the friendship and strategic partnership between the two countries.

He hoped that the ministries' affiliation would develop further, ensuring national security in each country and thus contributing to peace, stability and development in the region and the world at large.

Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi praised Viet Nam's achievements in politics, economics and culture as well as the outcomes of co-operation between the two ministries in recent years.

He also hoped bilateral ties would continue to develop, strengthening the traditional friendship and co-operation between the two countries. — VNS
