MOSCOW — China is ready to work with Russia to bring cooperation on law enforcement and security to a new height, visiting State Councilor Guo Shengkun said on April 15.
The China-Russia comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership has been working on a high level and has entered a new phase as significant progress has been made in bilateral cooperation on law enforcement and security, which is consistently injecting fresh impetus into bilateral relations, Guo said during his meeting with Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev.
Guo, who is also minister of public security, added that China is ready to work with Russia to bring their cooperation on law enforcement and security to a new height.
Noting that Russia-China relations are progressing smoothly with frequent mutual visits by top officials of both sides, Patrushev said Guo’s visit will surely help to promote bilateral cooperation on law enforcement and security, adding that Russia is willing to work for closer coordination with China and jointly deal with common threats and challenges.
During his visit, Guo also met with heads of the Russian Federal Drug Control Service, Federal Security Service, Federal Guard Service and the Ministry of Internal Affairs, with several cooperation agreements signed between China and Russia.
