Bilateral Relations: Russia and China to enhance public security cooperation

Russia and China are to boost cooperation - especially in the areas of public security, according to Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev. He was speaking in Moscow at a meeting with visiting Chinese Public Security Minster Zhou Yongkang on Monday.

Nurgaliyev said that interaction between the Russian Interior Ministry and the Chinese Public Security Ministry is strengthening within the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) format, including the launching of the mechanism of the regional antiterrorist structure of the SCO.

Public security cooperation is among the most important issues between the two countries, especially under the changing international circumstances, Zhou said.
