Lt Gen Nguyen, deputy head of the Vietnamese military’s political department, made the remarks at a conference on “propaganda activities” attended by Communist party officials.
“The Central Military Commission is very interested in building up a standing force to counter the wrong viewpoints,” he said, referring to the party’s branch in the military. He added that the military would work with internal security and other forces in Vietnam to build a specialised cyber warfare force.
