Interior and public security ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member states held their second meeting in Astana on Thursday, pledging for closer cooperation in law enforcement and security.

The meeting, hosted by Kazakh Interior Minister Kalmukhanbet Kassymov, gathered Chinese Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu, interior ministers from Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and vice interior minister from Tajikistan.

At the meeting, Meng, also Chinese state councilor, said the SCO member states should further expand and deepen the cooperation in the field of public security as the non-traditional security issues become increasingly prominent, especially the new challenges brought by "three evils forces" of separatism, extremism and terrorism, as well as transnational organized crimes, drug trafficking and cybercrimes.

Thus, the member states should improve the cooperation mechanism, smooth channels of cooperation, and improve the cooperation efficiency, he added.

Meng also said that China was ready to make joint efforts with other SCO member states to make this meeting a platform for pragmatic cooperation and further promote law enforcement cooperation in the region.

The meeting ended with signing a protocol on comprehensive efforts aimed at closer cooperation between the SCO law enforcement agencies on combating crimes.
