VGP – Minister of Public Security To Lam vowed to promote cooperation in investigating and cracking down on drug trafficking rings from third countries to Thailand through Viet Nam and vice versa during his reception with new Thai Ambassador to Viet Nam, Nikorndej Blankura in Ha Noi on August 5.

The Ministry of Public Security's ties with Thai agencies like the Royal Thai Police, National Security Council, and Ministry of Justice have been sustained and consolidated, bringing about practical outcomes, added Minister To Lam.

He singled out as example the fruitful exchange of information on trans-national crime; coordination in verifying and arresting wanted criminals and expelling individuals who take advantage of Thai territory to conduct sabotaging activities targeting Viet Nam.

The Minister pledged to enhance joint work in the field of training and equipment aid serving drug crime prevention and control.

To boost such engagements in the future, the minister suggested the two sides work towards the signing of an extradition agreement as a basis for their law enforcement forces; continue to share experiences in the management of entry-exit activities, tourism and investment; strengthen coordination in handling cases related to Vietnamese and Thai citizens; and step up cooperation in the field of human resources training.

For his part, Nikorndej Blankura pledged to do his utmost to foster Viet Nam - Thailand collaboration across various fields./.
