BEIJING, July 22 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor Meng Jianzhu met with Singaporean Deputy Prime Minister Wong Kan Seng here Thursday and called for closer cooperation between the two nations in the fight against cross-border crime and terrorism.

Meng, also minister of Public Security, praised the increased cooperation between Chinese public security departments and the police of Singapore.

He said the two countries had conducted effective exchange and cooperated well in law enforcement and within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL).

Meng also expressed appreciation for Singapore's support in ensuring security at the Shanghai Expo.

Meng hoped both sides would communicate more and expand cooperation in the fields such as crackdown on cross-border crime, maritime law enforcement, personnel training and antiterrorism, and would sign agreements for further cooperation in a timely manner.

Wong, also Singaporean minister for Home Affairs, said his government attaches great importance to cooperation with China.

Wong said Singapore hopes to further cement cooperation between the two countries in law enforcement safety.

Wong is in China to co-chair three meetings with Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan.

One of the meetings was about China-Singapore cooperation. The other two dealt with Suzhou Industry Park in east China's Jiangsu Province and the Tianjin Eco-City project, both of which are Chinese and Singaporean joint projects.
