VGP - The border guard forces of Viet Nam and China on April 11 conducted for the first joint patrol at provincial level along the shared border line in the Lao Cai-Hekou International Border Gate area.

The border guard in the northern province of Lao Cai province and the Mengzi border guard, China’s Yunnan province, have enhanced close cooperation in border management and protection works and gained a number of achievements in bilateral patrol activities along the border lines.

The border guard high commands of both sides directly launched patrol works in the border area of the Red River and Nam Thi River, from Border Marker No.99 to No.104.

The two nations’ border guard forces have joined hands to provide legal documents for people living along the border lines and organizations and individuals operating in the border.

After the joint patrol, they reached consensus on joint patrol plans for the second quarter of this year, and agreed to promote the fight against cross-border smuggling and illegal immigration. 

They will keep contact to inform each other of border management, establish a hot line and tackle arising issues.
