Vietnam is willing to cooperate with law enforcement agencies from other countries and international organisations to prevent radicalisation and violent extremism.

Deputy Director of the General Directorate of Security Lieutenant General Duong Minh Hung made the statement while presenting the speech of Minister of Public Security Tran Dai Quang at the Special ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on the Rise of Radicalisation and Violent Extremism (SAMMRRVE) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on October 2.

The speech underlined challenges in the fight against radicalisation and violent extremism, which are posed by differing opinions on this issue and the negative impact of globalisation on economic, cultural and social affairs.

It also mentioned obstacles in human and financial resources to fight extremists and terrorists who take advantage of the rapid growth of science and technology, especially information technology, to expand their reach.

Vietnam proposed ASEAN law enforcement agencies increase cooperation to curb and prevent financial resources and online websites propagating violent extremism and terrorism.

The involved parties should work together closely in immigration management and settlement of migrant issues, along with ensuring security for foreigner communities and completing bilateral and multilateral collaboration mechanisms in the field.

Holding regional and international forums to share information and put forth measures to cope with terrorism and extremism is essential.

Chaired by Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Home Affairs Admad Zahid Hamidi, the event aimed to manifest the solidarity and resolve of ASEAN member states in preventing terrorism and violence.-VNA
