Hanoi (VNA) – Minister of Public Security General To Lam on June 22 said cooperation between his ministry and the UK’s law enforcement agencies has been consolidated and enhanced on the basis of the development of the Vietnam-UK strategic partnership.

The minister made the affirmation while receiving UK First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, Dominic Raab.

The collaboration has produced important outcomes, especially in the fight against crime, human trafficking and illegal sending of migrants, and immigration management, he said.

He suggested the two sides continue to effectively implement agreements and memoranda of understanding on legal assistance, receiving back citizens and cooperation in crime combat, focusing on information sharing in fighting terrorism, organised crime, high-tech crime, child sexual abuse and illegal entry.

The two sides should closely coordinate to carry out the memorandum of understanding on cooperation in fighting human trafficking, he continued.

For his part, Raab pledged to work to promote the partnership between British law enforcement agencies and the Vietnamese ministry, considering this an important factor to build trust and boost cooperation between the two countries, matching cooperation potential of the two countries as well as the aspirations of their peoples./.
