MINSK, 24 November (BelTA) - Belarus and Vietnam have the same opinion of the challenges and threats that affect global security, State Secretary of the Belarusian Security Council Aleksandr Volfovich told the media after his meeting with Vietnamese Minister of Public Security To Lam in Minsk on 24 November.
“The bilateral meeting between the delegations of the State Secretariat of the Security Council of Belarus and the Ministry of Public Security of Vietnam was positive and constructive. The parties touched upon a wide range of issues, mostly of practical nature, in the area of improving partnership relations between our friendly countries,” said Aleksandr Volfovich.
According to the state secretary, special attention was paid to the development of cooperation between the two countries through the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the State Security Committee, and the Emergencies Ministry.
“We assessed the military and political situation in our regions and outlined the vision of the situation. I would like to say that the leadership of both Belarus and Vietnam share the same vision of the military and political situation, which causes concerns, as well as agree with each other on the challenges and threats that affect the security of not only our countries, but also the world in general. This also applies to the fact that it is necessary to build a multipolar world, to destroy unipolar world vision, to pay more attention to the development of medium and small states and security issues, including cyberspace,” said Aleksandr Volfovich.
He said the topic of economic security was also discussed during the talks as this topic is considered the key to the sustainable development of society and the country as a whole. “We also reached mutual understanding on these issues,” the state secretary said.
