Vietnam appreciates cooperation with Sri Lankan law enforcement agencies in the sharing of information on operations of international terrorists and trans-national organised criminals, standing Deputy Minister of Public Security, Sen. Lieut. Gen Dang Van Hieu has said.

At the July 21 talks in Hanoi with Secretary to the Sri Lankan Ministry of Law and Order Nanda Mallawaarachchi, Hieu suggested intensifying bilateral coordination in combating terrorism, and trans-national crimes involving e-commerce, drug and human trafficking, and money laundering.

He also asked for effectively realising agreements signed between the two nations and dialogue mechanisms by facilitating visits by their officials.

In his proposal, the biennial ministerial conference on security should continue while training in fire-fighting, search and rescue, and anti-terrorism be launched soon.

Nanda Mallawaarachchi expressed his hope that the ties between the two ministries will go more expansive for the sake of both nations.-VNA
