YEN BAI (VNS) — The Steering Committees for Northwestern, Central Highlands and Southwestern regions discussed ways to fight hostile forces abusing religion to cause social disputes and drive a wedge between the people and the Party and State.

In a meeting held in the northwestern province of Yen Bai on Saturday, the committees also focused on ways to ensure religious security in the three regions.

Together, they studied communication practices that have been effective against illegal religious activities and discussed measures to build a strong grassroots-level political system, settle issues related to uncontrolled migration, and foster national solidarity.

Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, who heads the Steering Committee for Northwestern Region, said that ethnic minority and religious affairs were issues of great significance for every nation in maintaining national solidarity, peace and stability.

He said that in the past year, the three steering committees had fulfilled all tasks entrusted to them by the Party Central Committee, contributing to national socio-economic development, ensuring defence and security, and building a grassroots-level political system.

Truong Xuan Cu, deputy head of the Steering Committee for Northwestern Region, said that since their previous meeting in September 2013, the committees had proposed solutions for several problems to the Party Central Committee's Politburo and Secretariat, the Prime Minister and localities.

They had also exerted every effort to speed up implementation of resolutions and decisions on socio-economic development, security, defence, ethnic minority and religious affairs and building up a grassroots political system, he said. — VNS
