Hanoi (VNA) – Interpol will help Vietnam
hunt fugitive criminals around the world and enhance information sharing with
the country, the organisation’s Secretary General Jurgen Stock told President
Tran Dai Quang at a meeting in Hanoi on July 6.

Jurgen Stock acknowledged the
close cooperation between Vietnam’s Ministry of Public Security and relevant
departments under the Interpol Secretariat in exchanging information on crime
prevention and fighting, as well as in implementing Interpol programmes in the
Asia-Pacific region.

He also appreciated Vietnam’s seconded officers at
Interpol Secretariat in Lyon, France and its Singapore-based Interpol Global

Close cooperation between Interpol and its member
nations is important to the fight against crime amidst increasing threats from
terrorism, non-traditional security risks and organised crimes, Stock said.

President Tran Dai Quang expressed his delight
at the fruitful cooperation between Vietnam’s Public Security Ministry and
Interpol in the fight against transnational crimes and highly appreciated the
effective support the Interpol General Secretariat has provided for the
Ministry over the past years. 

The President called on Interpol leaders and
Vietnam’s Ministry of Public Security to maintain contacts via delegation
exchanges and annual meetings of the General Assembly of Interpol.

He also asked the organisation to give priority
to helping Vietnam train law enforcement officers and create favourable
conditions for Vietnamese officers to work at the Interpol Secretariat.-VNA
