Their heroic sacrifices have colored the glorious national history in the current building, protection and development process of the country. The Party, State and people have recognized and appreciated their dedication.

He also pointed out that, in the current complex situation, relevant forces should exert all-out efforts and take professional effective measures to completely eliminate drug crime, which is viewed as a threat to the Vietnamese race.

President Tran Dai Quang instructed leaders of all levels to focus on the drug prevention and consider it as a regular task, and mobilize comprehensive power in implementing the National Strategy on drug prevention and control in Vietnam by 2020 with a vision toward 2030, contributing to ensuring social order, security and facilitating socio-economic development and international integration of the country.

The Drug Investigation Police should collaborate closely with the Border Guard, Coast Guard, Customs, local police units and relevant agencies in combating transnational drug trafficking rings and eliminating drug production facilities, drug trafficking and dealing organizations and drug using hubs.

The agencies in charge of drug prevention and fight should improve the efficiency of international cooperation, especially with neighboring countries, and effectively deny drugs entering Vietnam from foreign countries.
