The minister briefed the U.N. official on coordination between the ministry and U.N. Women in improving the leadership capacity for women and fighting violence against women, as well as the establishment of its relations with the U.N. Office of Counter-Terrorism in aviation security.

He said the ministry will officially send officers to U.N. peacekeeping operations this year, and will work to ensure the sex ratio among the officers as recommended by the UN, viewing the international mission as a regular, long-term task of the Vietnamese police force.

Lam suggested Tamesis to continue facilitating cooperation between U.N. agencies and the ministry, as well as the U.N.’s support to Vietnam in transnational crime combat in specific areas such as drug crime, corruption, human trafficking, money laundering and terrorism.

For his part, the U.N. Resident Coordinator pledged to make every effort to promote the relations between the U.N. and Vietnam and the ministry in particular.
