The Vietnamese and Thai police will jointly combat crime as part of a strategic partnership the two nations have agreed to set up.
A consensus for this was reached in a meeting between the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security's General Police Department for Crime Prevention and Suppression and the Royal Thai Police in Hanoi Monday, Vietnam News Agency reported.
General Pansiri Prapawat, deputy chief of the Thai police, hoped the two sides would frequently exchange officers and cooperate in training officers.
The two countries agreed to elevate their ties to the level of a strategic partnership during Nguyen Phu Trong's first visit to Thailand as Communist Party chief in late June.
An agreement to formalize the partnership, which will focus on defense and security, is expected to be signed at a meeting in October in Thailand.
Vietnam's Ministry of Public Security and Thailand's Council for National Security also held a meeting in Da Nang August 7 to review cooperation in the fight against illegal immigration, human trafficking, terrorism, money laundering, transnational drug and cyber crimes, and defense, legal, and justice cooperation.
