NDO – The People’s Public Security Forces (PPSF) are always a “sword” of the Party and a “steel shield” to safeguard the Party, State and people, contributing significantly to the past struggle for national liberation and reunification and the current cause of national construction, development and protection, Politburo member Tran Quoc Vuong has said.

Vuong, who is also permanent member of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat, made the remark during a virtual symposium held by the Ministry of Public Security in Hanoi on July 30 to mark the 75th anniversary of the PPSF’s traditional day and the 15th anniversary of the “All people protect national security” movement.

He stressed the important role played by the PPSF in maintaining political and security stability, which is one of the factors helping Vietnam receive the affection of international friends and draw attention from investors.

The PPSF must be more proactive in identifying risks and challenges, while clearly determining the objective and subjective reasons for shortcomings and limitations, and actively boosting reform to meet all requirements and tasks in the current situation, he stated.

The senior Party official highlighted the need to maintain the Party’s leadership over the PPSF, which, he said, is a prerequisite for all successes in carrying out the tasks of ensuring security and order.

He requested the building of a revolutionary, regular, elite and increasingly modern public security force with a strong political stance and pure revolutionary morality, asking the PPSF to safeguard national security, social order and safety in all circumstances, proactively grasp the situation, and improve the quality and effectiveness of strategic analysis, evaluation and forecasting to promptly identify risks to national security, thereby advising the Party and State on relevant policies and measures.

The PPSF should accelerate the “All people protect national security” movement; further improve coordination quality and efficiency with the people’s army forces, levels and branches in protecting national security and social order and safety; expand external relations; and strengthen international cooperation in combating crime and ensuring security and order, Politburo member Vuong recommended.

At the symposium, delegates provided a lot of valuable information and documents on the birth, development and maturity of the PPSF, affirming the PPSF’s significant position, role and contributions throughout the history of revolutionary struggle and national construction and defence.
