The two agencies inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on April 3 that will enable them to strengthen cooperation in legal assistance, prevention, and control of transnational and high-tech crimes, and take stronger measures to ensure the security of Vietnamese and Russian embassies in each other's territories.

Lieutenant General Nguyen Hai Trung, Director of the Hanoi Public Security Department, urged the Russian colleagues to share their practices and experiences with the Vietnamese side.

He emphasized that the focus now is on setting up a citywide surveillance camera network to ensure safety on the streets and in public transportation areas.

Trung promised that his ministry would continue to cooperate with its counterpart in Moscow within the framework of the agreements signed between the two ministries. He also highlighted the positive details of the relations between the two nations and the two ministries.

In his turn, Major General Novikov Vladislav Anatolievich, Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for Moscow, expects that the signing of the MoU will contribute to the further development of relations between the two capitals.

Russian authorities are always ready and willing to help Hanoi, he said.

According to the Russian official, Moscow has now installed more than 263,000 cameras in the city, of which 6,000 are in the metro stations. All the cameras are connected to the national security database.

Through the surveillance network, Moscow has solved 10,000 crimes and arrested more than 2,500 of the 3,000 most wanted international criminals.

The surveillance cameras are the key for Moscow to prevent crimes and deal with illegal acts, he said.
