Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security will work on orientations of cooperation in anti-terrorism with Mongolia, said Minister of Public Security Sen. Lieut. Gen. To Lam.

During his talks with Secretary of Mongolia’s National Security Council Gansukh Amarjargal in Hanoi on April 2, Lam said the Vietnamese ministry aims to share experience with the Mongolian side in terrorism prevention by controlling immigration, financial activities and extreme religions.

Lam suggested the two sides consider establishing a cooperation mechanism in the field of security to exchange information of common concern, and a coordination mechanism to ensure security for visiting delegations, representative diplomatic offices, diplomats and people of the respective countries.

Vietnam and Mongolia should step up collaboration through multilateral institutions to which both countries are members such as international treaties on fighting trans-national organised crimes, terrorism, corruption and torture, the minister said.

Lam highlighted affiliation between his ministry and relevant Mongolian agencies, citing an agreement reached by the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and the Mongolian Ministry of Justice and Internal Affairs on crime combat cooperation has created a legal framework for the two countries in this regard.  

Gansukh agreed with Lam’s suggestions, expressing his hope that the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and the National Security Council of Mongolia will enhance their partnership, especially in fighting crimes and terrorism, thus helping promote the traditional friendship and cooperation between the two countries.-VNA
