Minister of Public Security General To Lam and Commissioner General Yoon Hee-keun of the RoK's National Police Agency

Lam stressed that the comprehensive strategic partnership between Vietnam and the RoK has made progress, contributing to promoting bilateral relations, meeting aspirations of their people, for peace and prosperity of both nations.

He noted with pleasure outcomes of the second phase of the project on improving criminal science capacity funded by the Korean agency, saying it has helped raise criminal science capacity for the Vietnamese ministry’s officers.

To strengthen relations between the two countries as well as the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) and the NPA, the minister suggested the two sides continue consolidating their political trust, maintain mutual support at regional and international forums, enhance cooperation across spheres, especially economy and trade, and foster cultural and people-to-people exchanges.

The two sides should increase all-level delegation exchanges, step up cooperation in cross-border crime prevention and control, and forge collaboration between their units, he continued.

Lam also called for further coordination from the NPA in materializing the above-said project and the organization of training courses in the RoK for Vietnamese police officers.

He emphasized the positive, stable development of cooperation in law enforcement and the fight against crime, which has brought about practical benefits to both sides.

For his part, Yoon pledged to work on promoting collaboration between the two agencies, contributing to ensuring national security and social order and safety in each country.
