BEIJING, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) -- A senior Chinese public security official said here Tuesday that China and Kyrgyzstan should promote bilateral cooperation in order to jointly fight drug trafficking in the region.

Chinese State Councilor and Minister of Public Security Meng Jianzhu made the remarks when meeting with Kyrgyzstani State Drug Control Service Chief Vitaly Orosaliyev.

The global drug problem is still continuing to expand, Meng said, adding that drug trafficking groups, terrorist organizations and organized crime gangs are in collusion.

They bring severe challenges to each country's security and stability, economic development and citizens' health, Meng said.

The official said both China and Kyrgyzstan face severe harms from drug trafficking in the "Golden Crescent" region.

He urged law enforcement departments in both countries to work together to efficiently prevent drugs from the "Golden Crescent" region from being trafficked to both countries.

Meng called for making more contributions to maintaining both sides' safety and security, and safeguarding people's lives and health.

"As a friendly neighbor of Kyrgyzstan, China has been respecting the Kyrgyzstani people's rights in independently choosing their development path," Meng said, "as well as supporting the Kyrgyzstani government's efforts in protecting state sovereignty and independence, and boosting economic and social development."

China hopes to make joint efforts with Kyrgyzstan to push forward the healthy and stable development of the Sino-Kyrgyzstan good neighborly and friendly cooperative relations, Meng said.

Orosaliyev said the Kyrgyzstani State Drug Control Service highly values developing law enforcement cooperation with the Chinese Public Security Ministry.

Kyrgyzstan hopes to beef up communication and coordination with China to jointly and efficiently fight against transnational drug crimes, Orosaliyev said.

After the meeting, the two sides signed a cooperative agreement on fighting drug trafficking and the abuse of narcotics, psychotropic drugs and precursor chemicals.
