HA NOI (VNS) — The People's Public Security Force has contributed significantly to Vietnam's achievements over the last five years, Politburo member and Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said at the Central Public Security Party Organisation's sixth congress.
Opening the congress in Ha Noi yesterday, General Tran Dai Quang, Politburo member, Secretary of the Central Public Security Party Committee and Minister of Public Security, said despite complex developments in the region and the world during the last five years, the force's Party Committee had succeeded in fulfilling goals set in the resolution from the Central Public Security Party Organisation's fifth congress.
The two-day event, attended by 369 delegates representing staff and Party members of the Central Public Security Party Organisation, will review successes and failures in the implementation of the Party Organisation's fifth congress resolutions while setting up goals for the 2015 – 2020 term.
It will also examine the Central Public Security Party Committee's leadership between 2010 and 2015 and give opinions on draft documents to be submitted to the 12th National Party Congress, slated for early next year.
In his speech, PM Dung said the force had been faithful to the Party, the Fatherland and people. It had made accurate forecasts and proposed a number of strategies regarding security, order and socio-economic development to the Party and State, thus helping safeguard national security and sovereignty.
The force has employed measures to ensure social security and order, defeat sabotage plots from hostile forces and guarantee complete safety for important political events, he added.
According to the PM, the Public Security Force has been co-operating effectively with ministries, sectors and localities, especially the People's Army, to step up the ‘All People Protect National Security' movement. It has also made improvements in the solidification of the Party and People's Public Security Force.
Underlining opportunities and challenges facing the country, region and world, the Government leader called for national unity to firmly safeguard the socialist nation of Viet Nam.
He told the Central Public Security Party Committee to increase the quality of situation analyses and forecasts to strengthen political security and social order and fight terrorist and riot plots.
The Central Public Security Party Organisation must focus on building the Party and a pure, strong and capable Public Security Force, he noted.
The leader also requested that the force expand co-operation with foreign security, intelligence and police forces and organisations. It should also learn from its partners' experience, take part in regional and global security mechanisms, and actively engage in solving global security issues.
Better international co-operation would also help the Public Security Force prevent sabotage schemes and intensify Vietnam's relations with other nations, PM Dung stated. — VNS
