HÀ NỘI — Party General Secretary and President Nguyễn Phú Trọng hailed the public security force for its achievements in 2019.
Addressing a conference yesterday held by the standing board of the Central Public Security Commission, the Party leader said the force has played an extremely important role in maintaining political security and social order and safety while giving timely advice to the Party and State.
The Party chief commended the force for taking the initiative in monitoring, analysing and forecasting problems and providing timely strategic recommendations to the Party and State for its policies.
He also lauded the public security ministry for having ensured absolute security and safety of important targets, political events, international conferences, and activities of Party, State leaders, and international delegations.
The public security force has taken measures to ensure national security and interests, maintain political security and prevent sabotage attempts, while advising the Party and State on handling disputes, protecting national territory and national interests in the East Sea (internationally known as the South China Sea).
He said the effectiveness of State management in security and order has been enhanced, with efforts in the fight against corruption, black credit, drug-related crimes winning support from the public.
The co-ordination between the Ministry of Public Security and other ministries, agencies, sectors, localities in protecting security and order as well as in involving all people in protecting State security has produced important results, Trọng added.
Secretary General Trọng also said that the force has focused on Party building work and achieved good results, while the leadership and commanding work was enhanced and reformed to follow reality at grassroots level.
The Party leader reminded the force that 2020 will witness many important political events. The force should analyse the causes of limitations to seek suitable solutions to those problems.
He also requested the force’s Party Committee to continue implementing the Party Central Committee’s resolutions on Party building, and select capable candidates for Party committees in the force for the 2020-2025 tenure, as well as to for the 13th Party Central Committee and the 15th National Assembly (2021-26 tenure).
At the conference, delegates focused on assessing the security and order situation along with the performance of the public security force in 2019. They analysed the causes behind the shortcomings and limitations of the force during last year, and outlined targets, requirements and tasks regarding the maintenance of security and order and building of the force in 2020.
The conference also evaluated the outcomes of the implementation of the Politburo’s Resolution 22-NQ/TW on continuing to reshuffle the apparatus of the Ministry of Public Security over the past nearly two years. — VNS
