China donates law enforcement equipment to Philippines


16:10, December 13, 2011

MANILA, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese government donated two million yuan (314,200 U.S. dollars) worth of law enforcement equipment to the Philippine government to help in its effort to combat crime and improve security.

In a turnover ceremony held Tuesday, China's Ambassador to the Philippines Liu Jianchao said the equipment, which was donated to the Philippine justice department, is in line with the existing bilateral cooperation between the law enforcement agencies of two countries.

"We should have every reason to believe that the future cooperation between our two countries on combating transnational crimes will continue with strength and depth and reap even more rich fruits in the days to come," he said.

Philippine Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said the donated equipment will not only enhance the country's law enforcement efforts but also improve the security provided to state witnesses.

"I am glad to note that our common aspiration for peace and order and the attainment of progress in our region has resulted in cooperative efforts that had made significant progress," she said.

For the last six years, both the Philippines and China have appointed respective Police Liaison Officers in their respective embassies in Manila and Beijing. The two East Asian countries launched close joint efforts in combating crimes.
