Police of the Chinese province of Yunnan said the four countries will conduct visits, inspections and an anti-drug publicity campaign during the four-day joint patrol, in a bid to safeguard the security and stability along the Mekong River.

The patrol, with the participation of five ships, will also cover the Golden Triangle, a narcotic hotbed.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the law enforcement forces of the four countries will jointly direct the operation by remote video command system for the first time./
