HÀ NỘI — Special Task Police Battalion No 1, an elite unit of the Ministry of Public Security’s Mobile Police High Command, marked its 20th anniversary and was awarded the Feat Order (first class) by President Trần Đại Quang in the capital on Thursday. 

The battalion is tasked with protecting important political, economic, cultural and social events, along with other specialised forces of the ministry, the army and relevant agencies. Its duties also include riot, terrorism and abduction prevention, and ensuring political stability, security and pubic order. 

Addressing the ceremony, President Quang said protecting security and order is a weighty task given complex global and regional developments and unending plots by hostile forces to overthrow the Party and the socialist regime in Việt Nam. 

Non-traditional security threats, such as natural disasters, epidemics, climate change, environmental pollution and terrorism, are also developing, he warned. Organised and transnational crimes, high-tech and drug crime are still issues of public concern, he added. 

The President asked the mobile and special task police to continue close coordination with relevant agencies to defeat crime and hostile forces. He also urged them to enhance relations with special task forces of other countries in training and information and experience sharing, to improve their combat capacity. — VNS
