Hanoi (VNA) – Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong hailed the Central
Public Security Party Committee and the Ministry of Public Security for fulfilling
assigned tasks this year during a conference held by the committee in Hanoi on December 20.
Directing future tasks, Trong said the committee and public
security forces must build on the past achievements, keep a close watch of the situation
at home and abroad so as not to be taken by surprise by any incident, while preparing plans to ensure absolute safety and security amid the COVID-19
pandemic and during the country’s important political events, as well as
prevent sabotage activities by hostile and reactionary forces.
The Party leader required the public security forces to take more drastic and effective actions in the fight against corruption and
negative behaviours, especially degradation
in political thought, moral virtue and lifestyle.
He stressed that the Central Public Security Party Committee and the Ministry of Public Security must continue following the absolute, direct and
comprehensive leadership of the Party, coordinating closely with the people’s army,
ministries, agencies and the public to create a solid people’s security posture. They must play a crucial role in
the cause of protecting social security and order.
The Party General Secretary noted that special attention must be paid to Party building and
rectification, and the draft project on building
revolutionary, regular, elite and modern people’s public security must be completed early to submit to the Politburo for consideration.
Minister of Public Security Gen. To Lam said the Party chief’s directions
offer important orientations to the task of protecting national security,
ensuring social safety and order and building public security forces next year
and the entire tenure./.
