The new Minister of Public Security, Tran Dai Quang, has requested the entire people’s police force to improve its ability to grasp situations and better advise the Party and State on measures of safeguarding the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
General Quang made the plea at an August 17 online meeting of generations of the police force on the 66th anniversary of the Vietnam People’s Police and the sixth anniversary of the ‘All people Protect National Security’ movement.
During the meeting, Minister Quang asked the police force to closely cooperate with other ministries, sectors, and organizations at both central and local levels to strengthen the whole political system and people in safeguarding national security, maintaining social order and serving the country’s socio-economic development.
Mr Quang also reviewed the 66-year path that the Vietnamese police force has taken.
He said generations of the police force have demonstrated their solidarity and strict self-discipline, their close coordination with other forces, and their high responsibility to the Party, State, and people. They have also actively followed the moral example of late President Ho Chi Minh, he said.
Units in the police force were urged to pay due attention to Party building, increasing discipline and forming a positive internal culture with the aim of building a clean and strong police force.
During the meeting, Colonel Le Thang represented retired police officers to express their confidence in the leadership of the Central Public Security Party Committee.
A young member of the police force, Major Vu Manh Ha, pledged to strive to continue to learn, build on the force’s traditions, and make sacrifices in order to defend national security.
