The ministry also worked with the Vietnamese authorities to verify information and jointly dealt with the issue.

Viet Nam always pays attention to ensuring security, social safety and order for domestic citizens as well as foreigners living, studying and working in the country, thus discovering and seriously punishing violators of legal regulations, she affirmed.
