BOAO, March 29. /TASS/. Higher judicial bodies of the BRICS member-countries will enhance their interaction after Russia takes over the organization’s chairmanship on April 1, a Russian Supreme Court judge Vladimir Khamenkov told TASS on Sunday on the sidelines of the Boao Forum for Asia.
Khamenkov noted that on Saturday a special meeting of representatives of higher judicial bodies of BRICS member-countries had taken place in Sanya (Hainan Province, China) to outline the prospects for cooperation. "The results of prospective cooperation will certainly be very impressive. According to President of the Supreme People’s Court of China Zhou Qiang, the Sanya forum has made the first step to ensure tangible results in the interaction between our legal systems," he said.
"Yesterday we signed a relevant agreement on the results of the forum and outlined long-term prospects for our interaction. Moreover, we want to make this forum held in the framework of the Boao forum a permanent body," Khamenkov noted.
He added that the agreement envisaged interaction in a wide array of issues, including environmental and wildlife protection. However, there’re also more important areas. "This is certainly information interchange and legislative development problems," he said.
