– President Tran Dai Quang has called on the whole Party, people and army to heighten revolutionary vigilance and combating spirit to firmly defend national security and ensure social order and safety.

The President made the call while attending a ceremony held by the Ministry of Public Security in Hanoi on August 15 to review the “All people protect national security” movement in 2006-2018.

He pointed out opportunities and challenges as the country is entering a period of comprehensive reform, industrialisation, modernisation, and international integration.

The President hailed effective models and outstanding individuals in the field, which, he said, will be one of the important practical foundations for the Party and State to promulgate policies and solutions to strengthen the protection of national security and order.

He ordered further reforms in terms of forms and measures to build the “All people protect national security” movement in line with specific conditions of each region and field while enhancing coordination between the Public Security Force and the Vietnam People’s Army, Vietnam Fatherland Front, relevant agencies and sectors.

The State leader suggested improving the quality of self-management, self-defence, self-protection and self-reconciliation models in addition to rewarding contributors in the fight against crimes.

In the 2016-2018 period, the country has 2,080 typical models in the movement, which helped the police uncover over 300,000 cases, arrest nearly 200,000 violators, and crack down on thousands of criminal gangs.-VNA
