BEIJING, June 21 (Xinhua) -- China and Germany Monday held a vice-ministerial dialogue on police cooperation and law enforcement.
China's Vice Minister for Public Security Meng Hongwei joined Germany's State Secretary to the Ministry of the Interior Klaus-Dieter Fritsche to chair the second meeting between the two ministries in Beijing.
"The two sides had consultations and reached extensive consensus on topics ranging from countering terrorism, drug control, fighting illegal immigration to Shanghai World Expo security," said a statement from China's Public Security Ministry.
Meng Jianzhu, Chinese State Councilor and Minister for Public Security, met with Fritsche after the talks. Meng said China and Germany had maintained sound relations with frequent police exchanges and effective consultation.
"I hope the consensus reached in the second meeting will be well implemented," said Meng.
Meng said China and Germany should facilitate cooperation among their anti-terrorism departments, including intelligence exchanges, case studies, personnel training and expert communication.
Fritsche said Germany's Interior Ministry would prioritize law enforcement cooperation with China's Ministry of Public Security and would work with Chinese counterparts to make cooperation more in-depth, pragmatic and efficient.
