Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnamese and Chinese competent agencies will strengthen cooperation in crime combat, and push ahead with the signing of an agreement on the transfer of sentenced persons.

The consensus was reached during the online talks between Vietnamese Minister of Public Security General To Lam and Secretary of the Commission for Political and Legal Affairs of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Guo Shengkun on September 15.

Lam said the traditional friendship between the two Parties and States has been tightened, stressing the Vietnamese Party and State have considered the preservation and development of the Vietnam-China comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership a top priority in the country’s foreign policy.

Cooperation between the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and China’s law enforcement agencies has played a role in protecting the absolute leadership of the CPC and the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) and socialism, as well as ensuring national security, and social order and safety.

Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the two sides have still made achievements in cooperation, he said.

Guo expressed his hope that the bilateral comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership will grow further, and cooperation between the Vietnamese ministry and law enforcement agencies of China will continue to develop strongly.

The two sides agreed to continue the exchange of information about the regional and global situation, and step up collaboration in economy, trade and investment in a substantive, balanced and healthy fashion after the pandemic is put under control./.
