Viet Nam News MOSCOW — A delegation of Việt Nam’s Ministry of Public Security, led by Minister Tô Lâm, discussed co-operation on security issues with Russia’s security leaders last Friday. 

During the meetings, Russian Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev and Director of the Federal Security Service Alexander Bortnikov said the trip is important for cementing and developing a co-operative relationship between the two sides in fighting crime and ensuring security and order. 

The two sides stressed the necessity for closer co-operation to deal with increasingly sophisticated crimes like terrorism, high-tech crime, drug crime, and human trafficking. 

They agreed on boosting exchanges of delegations and information - and on experience sharing to deal with cybersecurity, terrorism and high-tech crime. They will also work together on investigation, verification, and manhunts for wanted criminals. 

The two sides also reached consensus on training of officials to meet demand for ensuring national security, order and social safety in each country. 

The Vietnamese delegation is on an official visit to Russia, during which they attended the 7th international meeting of senior security officials on May 24-25. — VNS
