Zhao congratulated on the success of the recent 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), which he said will open up a new chapter in the country’s socialism building cause.
He also congratulated Nguyen Phu Trong on his re-election as the General Secretary of the CPV Central Committee.
The Chinese minister told the host that his visit aims to step up the implementation of joint high-level perceptions, especially in law enforcement.
He highly evaluated the results of bilateral cooperation in COVID-19 prevention and control, while expressing his belief that the Vietnamese people, under the leadership of the CPV, will gain greater achievements in national building and development and successfully carry out targets set by the 13th National Party Congress.
Zhao said that in the coming time, the two ministries will continue working together in implementing common perceptions of the two countries’ senior leaders, speed up collaboration in crime prevention and control, thus helping to develop the bilateral relations more intensively and extensively, bringing practical benefits to the people of both nations and maintaining peace and stability in the region and the world.
Trong spoke highly of the outcomes of the talks between the two ministers of public security, and proposed the ministries maintain the effective implementation of high-ranking leaders’ common perceptions on security cooperation and law enforcement, and promote their special roles in the new normal situation of pandemic prevention and control, and economic recovery and development.
He also suggested the two ministries increase exchanges and meetings through flexible forms.
The top leader affirmed that the Vietnamese Party, State and people always attach importance to consolidating and developing the friendly neighbourliness with their Chinese counterparts.
Vietnam is willing to, together with China, maintain high-level communications, well control differences, effectively carry out cooperation in various fields, and continuously develop their relations in a healthy and stable manner, Trong said.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc received visiting Chinese State Councillor and Minister of Public Security Zhao Kezhi in Hanoi on February 19.
Welcoming his guest, who is in Vietnam to co-chair the 7th meeting on cooperation in crime prevention and control between the two ministries of public security, PM Phuc informed about the success of the recent 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV).
He reiterated that the Vietnamese Party, State, and people always attach importance to maintaining and developing the friendly neighbourliness and comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership with their Chinese counterparts, which is a consistent policy, a strategic choice, and a leading priority in Vietnam’s foreign policy.
The PM applauded the outcomes of the working session between Zhao and Vietnamese Minister of Public Security To Lam, asking the two sides to continue implementing the freshly signed agreement well.
The Chinese minister delivered Premier Li Keqiang’s Lunar New Year greetings and congratulations on the success of the CPV’s 13th National Congress to PM Phuc.
Vietnam and China are important strategic partners of each other, Zhao emphasised, expressing his hope that they will further strengthen economic, trade, and investment ties and guarantee supply chains so as to generate practical benefits for both peoples.
PM Phuc thanked China for its active cooperation and support for Vietnam’s proposals and initiatives during the latter’s Chairmanship of ASEAN in 2020.
Amid fast and complex developments in the global and regional situation, the countries’ Government leaders held phone talks early, in April 2020, to discuss cooperation and mutual assistance in the COVID-19 fight, he noted.
Vietnam highly values China’s enormous efforts in the pandemic prevention along with economic recovery and development, he went on.
The PM underlined that in the face of the current complex international situation and for all-round interests of the two Parties and countries, Vietnam really hopes for peace and stability in the region.
The CPV has the responsibility of guaranteeing Vietnam’s legitimate interests, and it supports a China of development with active contributions to regional and global peace, cooperation, and development, Phuc affirmed.
Vietnam wishes and is ready to join China in enhancing political trust, coordinating well in international and regional issues of shared concern, effectively realising the high-level common perceptions on sea-related issues, respecting each other’s legitimate interests on the basis of compliance with international law, and actively contributing to the maintenance of peace and the promotion of cooperation and development in the region and the world, according to PM Phuc.
He voiced his belief that the two governments and the two ministries of public security will help with the sound relations between Vietnam and China.
The Vietnamese Government leader also asked the Chinese Ministry of Public Security to facilitate the development of bilateral links in economy and trade and help sustain peace, friendship, stability, and development along the shared borderline.
Via Minister Zhao, PM Phuc offered the best wishes to Chinese Party General Secretary and State President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang.

Minister Lich emphasised that the visit demonstrates the friendly neighbourliness, fraternal bond as well as the special relations between the Parties, States, and armed forces of the two countries.
He took the occasion to thank the National Immigration Administration of China for donating medical supplies for COVID-19 prevention to Vietnam’s Border Guard.
For his part, Zhao congratulated Vietnam on its successful organisation of the 13th National Party Congress, and affirmed that the visit contributes to strengthening the traditional friendship between the two Parties and States in general and cooperation between the Vietnamese Ministry of National Defence and the Chinese Ministry of Public Security in particular.
On this basis, the two sides should continue to further deepen the traditional friendship between the armed forces and people of the two countries in a more practical and effective manner, he said.
At the reception, the two officers highlighted recent practical cooperation between the two ministries, especially in the context of the complex development of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Border forces and border management forces of the two countries have coordinated closely in deploying teams and posts to contain the spread of the virus in border areas and to minimise cross-border illegal travel, they said.
They also proposed solutions to promote and improve the efficiency of cooperation between the Vietnamese Border Guard and the National Immigration Administration of China in the time to come.
The two sides pledged to continue strictly implementing legal documents on border and bilateral agreements signed between the two countries, focusing on adopting synchronous measures and closely cooperating on exit and entry management and control amid the pandemic.
They will also work closely in the fight against crime, especially cross-border crime, terrorism, high-tech crime, and human, drug, and weapons trafficking, towards maintaining security and order in border areas.
Within the framework of the meeting, the two ministers signed a cooperation agreement between the two ministries on establishing a three-level law enforcement coordination mechanism in border control at border gates and in land border management./. VNA
