Vietnam, UK sign mutual legal assistance accord
Speaking at the event, Tiem said the two nations should increase the regular exchange of information about crimes and operation methods of new crimes, particularly transnational organised crime and those related to terrorism, hi-technology, human trafficking, illegal emigration and other issues of mutual concern.
Vietnam and the UK also need to increase their cooperation in personnel training in various forms, he elaborated.
According to the Deputy Minister, the move aims to improve the efficiency of bilateral cooperation in combating crimes in the future and implement the joint statement reached by the Prime Ministers of the two countries during PM Nguyen Tan Dung’s visit to the UK in March 2008.
The two countries had previously signed a memorandum of understanding on immigration, a memorandum of understanding on cooperation between their police forces and the newest, a prisoner transfer agreement during the visit to Vietnam by the Under Secretary of State for Justice, Jack Straw, last September.
