08:50, February 16, 2012

SEOUL, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) -- South Korean police on Wednesday held a launching ceremony for a police security and escort unit tasked with ensuring safety during the upcoming Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) in Seoul.

The launching ceremony, attended by some 1,800 participants, including lawmakers, high-ranking police officials and foreign ambassadors in Seoul, aimed to show Seoul's commitment to the successful hosting of the country's largest-ever international conference by providing perfect safety.

In his speech during the ceremony, Cho Hyun-oh, commissioner of the National Police Agency (NPA), ordered police to build the valuable experience of the Seoul G20 summit in 2010 and contribute to enhancing the country's standing in the world.

He also stressed that citizen cooperation and participation, critical for the success of the summit, can be garnered only when enforcement of law is conducted in a way that people can accept and support and that minimizes the inconvenience of the public.

The two-day summit from March 26-27 is expected to draw more than 50 heads of state and international organizations to the South Korean capital.
