VN’s Trong meets China public security minister

The Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), Vietnamese government and the people attach great importance to fostering friendly relations with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), state and people, said CPV General Secretary and State President Nguyen Phu Trong during a meeting with Chinese Minister of Public Security Zhao Kezhi on February 19 in Hanoi.

Vietnam is willing to work with China to maintain high-level exchanges, control disagreements, foster cooperation in all fields, and promote stability in bilateral relations, Trong said.

Zhao highly appreciated the outcomes of cooperation between the two countries in Covid-19 prevention and control in recent times.

The minister expressed his belief that the Vietnamese people, under CPV leadership, will continue to gain even more great achievements in national construction and development as well as successfully implement the goals set at its 13th National Congress.

He said the two public security ministries would continue to promote cooperation in crime prevention, contributing to deepening Sino-Vietnamese relations for the practical benefits of the two countries’ people and maintaining peace and stability in the region and the world.

Trong proposed the two ministries continue to foster collaboration in security and legal implementation and promote the special role of the police force.
