HANOI, March 16. /TASS/. Russia and Vietnam are intensifying and expanding partnership in the field of security, Deputy Secretary of the Russian Security Council Yevgeny Lukyanov told TASS following Russian-Vietnamese expert consultations on regional and international security that have ended in Hanoi on Wednesday.
"Cooperation between Russia’s Security Council and the relevant agencies of Vietnam in charge of security issues is stable, systematic and frank. This time we have again coordinated our stances on key bilateral issues, regional and international problems," Lukyanov said.
According to him, Russia and Vietnam proceed from the assumption that "security is indivisible and global." A major challenge to every country’s security today is international terrorism. "Countering international terrorism was one of the main issues at the meetings with our Vietnamese partners. We pointed to the need to ensure peace and stability in the region and around the world, the importance of enhancing the role of all bilateral and multilateral cooperation mechanisms based on complying with the principles of international law," Lukyanov noted.
He drew attention to the fact that Moscow and Hanoi consider all aspects of cooperation in the security area not only from the bilateral relations perspective, but also in terms of regional and international relations. "Today Russia and Vietnam reaffirm their readiness to jointly counter modern threats and challenges such as international terrorism, drug trafficking, illegal migration, maritime piracy, cross-border crime and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction," he said.
