At the meeting, Mr. Nam said scientific-technological breakthroughs, globalisation and growing international integration have created both opportunities and challenges, posing risk to security and social order and safety of many countries, including Viet Nam and Russia. The emergence of many new crimes, especially transnational and organised crimes, terrorism, hi-tech crime, human trafficking and drug-related crimes, calls for closer and more effective cooperation between the MPS and the MVD.

He said in the time ahead, the two sides need to focus on improving the quality of delegation exchanges, sharing information and experience in crime fight in a timely manner, and working together to investigate, verify and hunt criminals of Russian and Vietnamese nationalities hiding in the two countries.

The two countries need to enhance cooperation so as to prevent any organisations or individuals from taking advantage of one country’s territories to carry out sabotage activities against the other. They should also ensure security and safety for each other’s diplomatic representative agencies, entrepreneurs, students and expatriates.

The official called on the two sides to step up ties in improving the capacity of their law enforcement staff, especially in defence and military techniques, as well as in fighting hi-tech, drug and economic crimes.

He also asked the MVD to support the MPS with specialised equipment and vehicles made by Russia and consider transferring technology and partnering in the production of equipment and vehicles for crime prevention and combat in Viet Nam.
