VGP – Viet Nam and Cambodia have planned to join hands in publicly controlling hot spots on drugs such as roads, waterway, airports and harbors at border areas to promptly uncover and arrest drug traffickers. 

According to the information of the Ministry of Public Security, on Viet Nam-Cambodia border lines, drug trafficking from the Triangle Area to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Viet Nam or some cases illegally transporting drug from North America and Africa to transit in Cambodia and Viet Nam to China for consumption are very complicated. 

In 2019, the Investigation Police Department on Drug-related Crimes coordinated with functional agencies and police forces at Viet Nam-Cambodia border areas to implement the Plan No. 194/KH-BCA-C04 on struggling against drug crimes. 

A total number of 531 drug crimes were uncovered, with 48 bricks of heroin, 20.723 kg of heroin, 112.74 kg and 24,239 synthetic drug pills, 4.69 kg of marijuana and 13 tons of precursors seized.

Recently, the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security delegation led by Deputy Minister Le Quy Vuong attended a meeting on reviewing drug crimes prevention and control on Viet Nam-Cambodia border areas in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. 

At the event, the two sides agreed to cooperate in investigating, identifying and detecting drug trafficking cases, arresting wanted drug traffickers, closely controlling hot spots on drug as well as enhancing drug prevention and control communication works, establishing and maintaining the information exchange mechanism between their functional agencies.
