HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese President Nguyễn Xuân Phúc on Monday underlined the target to build a modern and elite People’s Security force with firm political, ideological, and moral strength in line with the goal set in the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress.
Addressing a ceremony to celebrate the 75th founding anniversary of the People’s Security Academy, the State leader stressed that the academy staff and students must be deeply imbued with the viewpoint that the mission to protect national security is under the absolute and direct leadership of the Party, the concentrated and united governance of the State.
Addressing the event, the State leader noted that the academy has maintained solidarity and creativity to overcome all difficulties and challenges, completing its mission in training personnel for the people’s public security force and contributing to protecting national security and social safety.
Ensuring national security contributes to ensuring the strength and the existence of the Party and our regime, as well as the country's stability and sustainable development, President Phúc said.
Highlighting challenges and opportunities that the country is facing, he requested that the academy and the Ministry of Public Security continue to firmly safeguard revolutionary achievements, the national interest, the Party, State, people and the regime, while strengthening renovation and international cooperation, fighting all sabotaging plots of hostile forces, and reducing crime.
He asked the leaders of the academy to change the mindset and take stronger actions to further develop the academy and continue to complete all missions. At the same time, it should reform its training activities to achieve higher quality, he said.
Founded in 1946, the academy has made significant contributions to the training of public security officers serving the country during the two resistance wars for national independence in the past as well as the present national construction and defence.
On behalf of the Party and State, President Phúc presented the Military Exploit Order, first class, to the academy in recognition of its outstanding achievements.
President Phúc also beat the drum to symbolically mark the beginning of the new academic year of the People’s Security Academy. — VNS
