HANOI — The friendly cooperation between the public security ministries of China and Vietnam should be strengthened, a senior Chinese official said on April 16.

Chinese State Councilor and Public Security Minister Guo Shengkun, who is wrapping up his visit to Vietnam on April 17, made the remarks while meeting Nguyen Phu Trong, general secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam on April 16.

Trong’s recent visit to China was a success, reaching important consensus with Xi Jinping, Chinese president and general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, on strengthening mutual political trust and deepening win-win cooperation. The consensus has framed the next orientations for comprehensive cooperation between the two countries in politics, economy, trade, culture and security, said Guo during the talks.

The task of the visit to Vietnam is to implement the consensus, bringing words to practice and achievements. China expects to conduct well-rounded collaboration on security with Vietnam and make active contribution to the friendship and cooperation between the two countries, stated Guo.

Vietnam and China enjoy a long history of traditional friendship and have similar development goals. Exchange and cooperation from all levels should be strengthened to face incoming challenges and achieve common prosperity, said Trong.

The CPV general secretary expressed the hope that Guo’s visit would further improve the relationship between security ministries of the two countries and deepen the friendship between the two peoples.
