MOSCOW, October 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Heads of prosecution of Russia and Cuba develop cooperation.
“I am adamant that fighting crime, which crosses borders, protection of rights and legal interests of citizens should be provided permanently on the basis of existing international agreements and local legislation,” Russia’s Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika said during a meeting with his Cuban counterpart Attorney General Dario Delgado Cura on Wednesday.
They signed an agreement on cooperation between prosecutor general’s and attorney-general’s offices of the two countries.
“It is a vital necessity to modernize the existing legal base,” Chaika stressed. “This is why I consider as timely the signing of the Agreement on cooperation between Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office and Cuba’s Attorney General’s Office, which includes direct cooperation between our authorities.”
He explained that presently, the two offices had been cooperating on the basis of an agreement, which was signed over 25 years earlier.
“I am sure that today’s agreement will favour development of cooperation between our offices,” Chaika said adding that he hopes it would be mutually productive.
