China and Kazakhstan agreed on Thursday here to deepen cooperation on law enforcement and security.
Kazakh Prime Minister Karim Massimov met Chinese State Councilor Meng Jianzhu on the sidelines of the second sitting of the interior ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization ( SCO) member states.
Speaking highly the development of the Sino-Kazakhstan relationship, Massimov said that fruitful results have been achieved in the two countries’ close contacts via pragmatic cooperation in various fields.
Kazakhstan and China have undergone good cooperations on law enforcement and security within the SCO framework, said Massimov.
Meng echoed Massimov’s words, saying that the China-Kazakhstan relationship is in the best period of history, with deepening political trust and expanding pragmatic cooperation.
The two countries have been jointly combating “the three evils” – terrorism, extremism and separatism – transnational organized crimes and drug trafficking, Meng said, adding that Kazakhstan and China shoulder common responsibility to deepen such cooperations on law enforcement and security.
Also on Thursday, Meng met Kazakh Minister of Internal Affairs Kalmukhanbet Kassymov and Secretary of the Security Council of Kazakhstan Marat Tajin.
Earlier this year, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev paid an official visit to Beijing. The two countries reached broad consensus on trade, resources, transportation and high-technology.
