HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam's Ministry of Public Security and Myanmar's Ministry of Home Affairs agreed to establish a deputy-ministerial security dialogue mechanism.

Deputy Minister of Public Security To Lam and Myanmar Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Kyaw Kyaw Tun reached the agreement during their first security dialogue in Ha Noi yesterday.

Lieutenant General To Lam said Viet Nam was proud to host the dialogue, which represented the result of ministerial talks during a Myanmar visit by Vietnamese Minister of Public Security Tran Dai Quang.

At the annual dialogue, the two sides will discuss methods for maintaining social order and national security as well as non-traditional security challenges such as terrorism.

Major General Kyaw Kyaw Tun spoke highly of the effective co-operation between the two ministries and expressed his belief that the first security dialogue would contribute to deepening the friendly ties between Myanmar and Viet Nam.
