Vietnam has achieved great achievements of historical significance, which have been contributed by the successful implementation of the foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, peace, cooperation, multilateralisation and diversification of international relations, including defence diplomacy and international cooperation activities in security and order of the People's Public Security force.
Bilateral and multilateral defence diplomacy has been carried out in a proactive, flexible, creative, effective, and substantive manner, continuing to serve as one of the pillars in Vietnam’s diplomacy and help raise the country’s role, stature, and prestige in the world.
