The Vietnamese and Thai police forces have committed to strengthening their close coordination in combating crimes in the coming time.

The consensus came at talks between Deputy Head of the General Department of Crime Prevention and Control under the Ministry of Public Security, Lieutenant General Trieu Van Dat, and visiting Deputy Chief of the Royal Thai Police, General Pansiri Prapawat, in Hanoi on August 12.

Dat said the move is to match with the two countries’ strategic partnership.

He expressed his delight at the sharing of valuable information in the field, mutual support at international forums and joint investigations in specific cases between the forces in recent time.

The Thai General, for his part, voiced his hope that the two sides will regularly exchange and cooperate in training officers to serve the safeguarding of social order in each country in the new periods.-VNA
