President Truong Tan Sang paid Tet visits to the social security and drugs crime investigation departments of the Ministry of Public Security on Feb. 5.

There will be many important domestic and international events to be held this year in Vietnam, so the role of the social security force is becoming more essential, Sang said.

He urged the force to join hands with other authorities to thwart all sabotage schemes by the enemy and perfect the legal documents relating to the State management of religious and racial work.

As the economy is growing and the integration intensifying, drug-related crimes will be more complicated, the President said, adding that besides safeguarding the national sovereignty, the drugs crime investigation department must ensure social security and a peaceful life for the people.-VNA
