Publication Date : 18-02-2014
A Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) official has pledged to strengthen efforts to work with the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security in the fight against cross-border crimes.
Kim Sik Hyun, Deputy Resident Representative of KOICA Viet Nam, made the commitment at a meeting with Senator Lieutenant Geneneral Dang Van Hieu, Permanent Deputy Minister of Public Security, on Monday.
He said the move aims to maintain security and order in each country along with actively contributing to the strategic partnership between the two sides.
In reply, Hieu stated that the Vietnamese ministry highly valued the efforts and contributions made by the KOICA to organise training courses on crime prevention and fighting for the Vietnamese police.
He voiced his hope that the agency will continue its co-ordination efforts with the relevant agencies of the Republic of Korea (RoK) to design more training courses on ways to combat crime, entrance-exit procedures and transport management, as well as a Korean language course for Vietnamese officers.
Hieu underlined the need for the two sides to accelerate the implementation of a project to build a library at the People's Police Academy and to work on more projects.
He confirmed that the Vietnamese ministry will partner with the RoK's agencies to properly implement the signed agreements in order to ensure the legitimate rights of RoK residents in Viet Nam and to assist investors from the country.
