Mr. Trần Quốc Vượng delivers his keynote speech at the meeting
Recognized religious organizations are basically operating in accordance with the Party's guidelines, the State's policies, and laws, promoting good cultural and ethical values of their religions in society.
Playing a leading role in ensuring religious security, the Public Security Forces have strictly followed the Party's and State's policies and laws on religious work. They have actively grasped the situations and advised the Party, State, and authorities at all levels on solutions to security issues in religious areas while fighting against hostile and reactionary forces who take advantage of religious issues to sabotage the great national unity bloc, disturb social order and national security.
