The High Command of the Vietnamese Border Guard held a conference in Dak Lak province on March 26 to discuss plans to prevent illegal cross-border migration in the Central Highlands region.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Commander Hoang Xuan Chien lauded the efforts of the border guard, relevant forces and authorities to maintain political security, social order and safety in the region.

He called for closer coordination between the Steering Committee for the Central Highlands Region and provincial authorities in exchanging information relating to illegal border crossings.

The border guard forces in the region should work with the military and police forces to guard border roads and intensify patrols around vulnerable areas.

Increased focus should also be devoted to raising awareness in the community, especially among ethnic minority groups, to be aware of scams and incitements, said the officer.-VNA
