HÀ NỘI The Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic have agreed to enhance information and experience sharing to fight drug crime, organised crime, terrorism, high-tech crime and illegal immigration.
They also agreed to increase delegation exchanges during talks between Minister of Public Security General Tô Lâm and Czech Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Jan Hamacek in Hà Nội on Monday.
Both sides will help each other investigate, capture, and verify information related to crimes. In addition, they will work together in human resources training to improve cybersecurity capacity and improve counter-terrorism ability.
Việt Nam and the Czech Republic will co-ordinate to not allow any organisations or individuals to take advantage of one country’s territory to sabotage the other nation.
Furthermore, they agreed to co-operate to assure safety for trade and investment activities, and protect the rights of the citizens and representative offices of each nation in the other country’s territory.
Minister Tô Lâm stressed his ministry values the visit of the Czech ministry, expressing his hope that it will be a milestone in bilateral relations in security and order, contributing to consolidating ties between the two countries.
Since 2014, co-operative ties between the two ministries have been enhanced, illustrated through signing the agreement on the transfer of sentenced persons, and the agreement on crime combat between the two countries, he stressed, adding they are working to implement the agreement on getting back citizens and the protocol to carry out the agreement inked in 2007.
Hamacek, for his part, spoke highly of the sound traditional friendship between the two nations, particularly in the fields of security-defence.
He rejoiced at the co-operative ties between the two ministries, which have developed into a deeper and more practical manner. — VNS
