An overview of the event. 

Representatives from professional and local police units discussed in depth the espionage situation, analyzed, evaluated and clarified hostile forces’  plots, operational methods, tricks and covert activities by against the Party, State and people through foreign agencies, reactionary organizations and individuals at home and abroad.

Over the past 35 years, under the leadership of the Party and State, the Politburo, the Secretariat, the Government and the PSCPC, the Public Security Forces have succeeded in defeating hostile forces’ attempts to overthrow the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam, the socialist regime in Vietnam, as well as to lead the country to fall in the orbit of and depend both politically and economically on foreign countries.

Particularly, the Public Security Forces neutralized all propaganda campaigns, conspiracies and activities conducted by reactionary and foreign hostile forces at home and overseas, which aimed to undermine the Vietnamese ideological foundations, spark riots, and  conduct terrorist acts, "color revolution" and "street revolution."

The results of the fight against foreign espionage and domestic reactionary forces have made an important contribution to building the all-people security posture, the people's security, while intensifying combined domestic and external security.
