China and Cambodia Wednesday pledged to enhance cooperation in law enforcement, counter-terrorism, drug control and fighting transnational crime.
Zhou Yongkang, a senior leader of the Communist Party of China, spoke highly of the effective cooperation in these areas during a meeting with Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Sar Kheng.
Zhou hoped the security and law enforcement organs of the two nations would work together to push forward the China-Cambodia comprehensive cooperative partnership.
Earlier Wednesday, Sar Kheng, also the country's Interior Minister, met with China's Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu to sign an exchange of notes on China's assistance of police equipment to Cambodia.
Meng, also a State Councilor, said China was ready to cement bilateral cooperation within multilateral frameworks, including the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
During the meeting, they vowed to advance bilateral cooperation in areas such as law enforcement, counter-terrorism and drug control.
