July 22, Ha Noi: Vietnam and Sri Lanka have agreed to step up cooperation in fighting transnational crime, especially those involving e-commerce and credit.

During a meeting between the Deputy Prime Minister of Vietnam Nguyen Xuan Phuc and the visiting Sri Lankan Secretary to the Ministry of Law and Order, Nanda Mallawarachchi in Ha Noi yesterday, Phuc has asked Sri Lanka to work closely with Viet Nam to fight crimes, especially those involving e-commerce and credit, as per their signed agreements.

The Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister has asked for closer bilateral collaboration to ensure security and safety for high-ranking delegations, as well as for trade, investment, studies and tourism activities in each country, the official Viet Nam News Agency reported.

Phuc thanked Sri Lanka for backing Viet Nam's bid for a seat on the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) from 2014 to 2016, UN Economic and Social Council from 2016 to 2018, and on the UN Security Council from 2020 to 2022.

Deputy Prime Minister has suggested mutual support at regional and global forums for peace and stability in the region and the world.

The visiting Sri Lankan official has informed his host of the outcome of his working session with the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and expressed hope that ties between the two ministries would go a long way for the sake of both nations.
