HÀ NỘI — The Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and its Lao counterpart yesterday agreed to step up exchanges in matters relating to youths, women and trade unions.
The consensus was reached during a working session between representatives of the two ministries’ general politics departments in Hà Nội. The two sides will maintain co-operation in personnel training and the sharing of experience in combating crime and ensuring security in border areas.
At the same time, they will launch more Vietnamese-Lao cultural and historical events, along with sports activities and volunteer programmes.
Speaking at the working session, Major General Nguyễn Hải Trung, head of the General Department of Politics under the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security, highlighted the enhanced ties between the ministries and these organisations.
He added that the two ministries’ young officers along the border had joined hands in various volunteer programmes, helping improve people’s living standards and combat against cross-border crime.
Trung also stressed the close collaboration between youth and women’s unions which, he said, had significantly contributed to national security, social safety and order, integration and socio-economic development in each nation. — VNS
