HÀ NỘI — Interpol will help Việt Nam hunt fugitive criminals around the world and enhance information sharing with the country, the organisation’s Secretary General Jurgen Stock told President Trần Đại Quang at a meeting in Hà Nội on Thursday.
Jurgen Stock acknowledged the close co-operation between Việt Nam’s Ministry of Public Security and relevant departments under the Interpol Secretariat in exchanging information on crime prevention and fighting, as well as in implementing Interpol programmes in the Asia-Pacific region.
He also praised Việt Nam’s seconded officers at the Interpol Secretariat in Lyon, France and its Singapore-based Interpol Global Complex.
Close co-operation between Interpol and its member nations is important amidst increasing threats from terrorism, non-traditional security risks and organised crime, Stock said.
President Quang expressed his delight at the co-operation between Việt Nam’s public security ministry and Interpol in the fight against transnational crime and praised the effective support the Interpol General Secretariat has provided for the ministry over the past years.
The President also asked the organisation to give priority to helping Việt Nam train law enforcement officers and create favourable conditions for Vietnamese officers to work at the Interpol Secretariat. — VNS
