Addressing the Central Public Security Party Committee’s conference reviewing the 10-year implementation of the resolution adopted at the 8th plenum of the 11th Party Central Committee on the strategy on national defense in the new situation, the President hailed the committee for its leadership and instruction in safeguarding internal political security, as well as economic, cultural and cyber security.
The committee has played a role in promoting the great national unity bloc and building a strong grassroots-level political system, he added.
The Ministry of Public Security has developed a strong, pure, elite and modern force, meeting requirements in the new situation, said President Phuc, who is also head of the steering committee on building a project reviewing the 10-year implementation of the resolution.
He asked the committee to raise more proposals regarding national defense in the new situation, utilize opportunities and work to push back risks and challenges, making national defense and security important resources for national development.
The committee should bring into full play the efficiency of international cooperation in security and order to handle complex issues and expand collaboration in other spheres, he suggested.
