BEIJING, December 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev said he was hopeful that cooperation between Russian and Chinese law enforcement agencies would make it possible to strengthen law and order in both countries.
The Russian interior minister has started an official visit to China. During the visit, he has visited the Public Security Ministry’s First Research Institute to give a look at products, including different equipment for inspecting citizens, as well as security equipment for law enforcers.
In the meeting with the institute’s head, Kolokoltsev said the Chinese colleagues had achieved progress in working out new technology in the field of security.
“We know about your institute. There are good achievements,” the Russian minister said, adding that police could not work without researches to ensure public security in the 21st century.
“The fact that security at the Olympic Games-2008 was ensured at the high level praises the work of your institute,” Kolokoltsev said.
The minister said he was hopeful that China’s achievements would be used in other countries, including Russia, and invited Chinese scientists to take part in Russia’s exhibition INTERPOLITEX.
Kolokoltsev also visited the Chinese People’s Public Security University. The Russian minister said Russian and Chinese policemen cooperated in the field of training and development of personnel. Such cooperation is based on several documents such as a protocol on cooperation between the Chinese People’s Public Security University and the Russian Interior Ministry’s Moscow University.
Kolokoltsev thanked the Chinese colleagues for receiving the Moscow University’s students in October 2013. A total of 106 Chinese specialists have undergone training at schools of the Russian Interior Ministry between 2011 and 2013. “I believe that such cooperation should be continued,” the Russian minister said.
He also noted the growing role of the All-Russian Advanced Training Institute of the Interior Ministry. “Last year U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon praised this Institute,” Kolokoltsev said.
“It is very important for Russia and China to exchange experience. We should join efforts aimed at promoting safety of a person and the society. I’m sure we should follow the way that the leaders of our countries did to improve cooperation. It is also necessary to build normal relations,” Kolokoltsev said.
Interaction between Russian and Chinese educational institutions will contribute to strengthening mutual relations. Thus, such cooperation will have a positive impact on law and order in both states, the Russian interior minister said.
