According to Major General Xo, the ministry has issued a general plan and 9 specific plans for dealing with terrorism, disorder or security disruption; and ensuring firefighting safety, communications safety and cyber security.

Talking with Vietnam News Agency, Major General Xo said that efforts to ensure security and safety have been carried out not only in Hanoi, but also in all provinces and cities nationwide and in all aspects. Crackdown on crime and close management of foreigners and illegal entries into Vietnam were launched, together with inspections on fire prevention and control, thus creating a safe and healthy environment for the Congress.

Xo added that at a rehearsal on January 10, the ministry directed new contents with the participation of new special-purpose combatant means, including holding the first parade of cavalry mobile police, anti-terrorism drill and protecting guards, which not only reflected the public security force’s power and determination, but also their thorough preparation for possible contingencies.

Following the launching ceremony, the public security force nationwide entered the “new ready” status to protect the security and safety of the Congress. They will stay on duty at the highest level in all units and localities. Armed patrols to discover crimes and law violators will be held with higher frequency, especially at complicated areas, and even on cyberspace.

According to Xo, the force issued a number of plans to ensure cyber and information security, actively fight and reject wrongful and hostile allegations, and counteract malicious, wrongful and fake news. Such measures will be taken before, during and after the Congress./.
