A senior Communist Party of China (CPC) official has pledged that China would enhance law enforcement cooperation with Vietnam.

"Law enforcement cooperation has become the highlight of all-round collaboration between China and Vietnam," Zhou Yongkang, member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, said at a meeting with Vietnam's Public Security Minister Le Hong Anh.

Their meeting came at the end of the China-Vitenam joint crime-fighting conference, which took place in Beijing Wednesday.

Zhou said the conference produced a number of agreements on fighting illegal border crossing, terrorism, counterfeiting, telecommunications fraud, gambling, people and drug trafficking and other cross-border crimes.

He called on the public security departments in the two countries to upgrade law enforcement cooperation.

Anh said Vietnam would like to work with China to consolidate cooperation in fighting crime and safeguarding social security.

On broader China-Vietnam ties, Zhou said the two socialist countries shared a long-standing friendship and stood the test of hard times.

As both countries confronted the task of seeking development and security, it was their shared aspiration to seek good relations and deepen collaboration, Zhou said, adding, "It is in the fundamental interests of both nations".

This year marked the 60th anniversary of China-Vietnam diplomatic ties and a friendly year of the two countries.

Both China and Vietnam should cherish the good situation, which had not come easily, and to strengthen strategic trust so as to take the all-round strategic partnership to a new high, Zhou said.

Earlier Wednesday, China's Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu and Anh attended the opening ceremony of conference.

Meng, also a state councilor, said that with growing exchanges between Chinese and Vietnamese people, the law enforcement departments of the two countries faced common challenges in conventional and unconventional security.

He hoped that police departments of the two countries would enhance communication and cooperation to jointly safeguard security and social order in the border areas.

The conference reviewed the achievements that the public security ministries of the two countries had made since the first joint crime-fighting conference in December 2008.

The two sides also outlined the goals and measures to be taken on joint crackdown on crimes.

Meng and Anh signed a pact on preventing and fighting on people abduction and trafficking.

Anh and his delegation will travel to north China's port city of Tianjin before heading home on Friday.
