Three more well-equipped ships were handed over to the Vietnam Marine Police to increase their patrol capacity in the country’s territorial waters.
They are able to resist bad weather at sea and transfer data and images to the Vietnam Marine Police’s Information Centre for processing through satellite systems.
The ships will be used for sea patrols to safeguard national sovereignty, protect natural resources, prevent environmental pollution, and deal with violations against sea laws.
They will be used for joint international patrols to strengthen cooperation and maintain safety, order, peace and stability at sea.
At the hand-over ceremony, Deputy Minister of Defence Sen. Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Thanh Cung asked the Vietnam Marine Police to master modern equipment and technology to accomplish assigned tasks.
