At the reception, Minister Lam said Viet Nam treasures the two countries’ strategic cooperative partnership, asking the RoK to continue sharing experience and promoting substantive cooperation in all fields.

The cooperation in ensuring security and order between the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security (MPS) and the RoK’s law enforcement agencies has gained positive outcomes, helping to ensuring peace and happiness for people. 

Regular delegation exchanges and bilateral meetings have been maintained, including the diplomatic – security – defence strategy dialogue, the security dialogue and the police cooperation conference at the deputy ministerial level. The MPS inked a cooperation agreement with the KNPA and a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in transnational crime fight with the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office of the RoK, he noted.

He added that traditional and non-traditional security issues, including terrorism, cybercrime, transnational crimes and migration, are likely to become complicated and threaten countries’ security, requiring security, police and law enforcement forces of both countries to strengthen coordination to make timely responses.

Given this, Lam asked leaders of the RoK’s Government to create conditions for the countries’ law enforcement agencies to bolster result-oriented relations.

In turn, PM Lee Nak-yeon expressed his delight at the fruitful cooperation between his country’s law enforcement agencies, including the KNPA, and the MPS.

He voiced his hope that the two sides will continue enhancing cooperation, especially in fighting transnational crimes, drug crime and terrorism; work together to ensure security, safety, rights and legitimate interests of Vietnamese and Korean citizens living in each other’s countries; and coordinate to help improve the capacity of Viet Nam’s law enforcement bodies.
