Earlier, Vietnam and the Czech Republic completed necessary procedures ratifying the agreement on cooperation in combating crimes, which became effective on February 12, 2019.

The agreement on the transfer of sentenced persons and the agreement on cooperation in combating crime were reached during the State visit to Vietnam by Czech President Milos Zeman in June 2017.

The ratification and implementation of the two legal documents is expected to create more legal foundations and corridors for the two countries to cooperate in the fight against crimes, and mark positive developments and promote the traditional friendship and multifaceted cooperation between Vietnam and the Czech Republic in the time ahead.
