Ha Tinh (VNA) – Huong Son district of Vietnam’s central Ha Tinh province will conduct a joint plan with Khamkeut and Xaychamphon districts of Laos’ neighbouring Bolikhamsai province against cross-border drug trafficking.

The plan was discussed at a conference held by the Ha Tinh provincial People’s Committee on April 15.

It aims to raise awareness of drug-related laws among residents of the three districts and encourage their help in detecting drug users as well as identifying and preventing drug dealing activities.

It is as part of the twining agreement between Ha Tinh and Bolikhamsai provinces and is expected to enhance collaboration between the two localities in crime combat and strengthen friendship between their people.

The operation will be carried out along the Vietnam-Laos border across Son Tay, Son Lam, Son Linh, Son Kim 1, Son Kim 2, and Son Hong communes and Tay Son town of Huong Son district alongside four villages of Khamkeut district and five others of Xaychamphone district.-VNA
