“Today, the Minister of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, General of the Police of the Russian Federation Vladimir Kolokoltsev held a meeting with the Minister for Home Affairs and the Minister for Law of Singapore Kasiviswanathan Shanmugam,” said the official representative of the MIA of Russia Irina Volk.
Vladimir Kolokoltsev stressed that a substantive political dialogue had been established between Russia and Singapore, which was maintained, inter alia, in the framework of the agreements of Russia-ASEAN senior officials in the area of combating transnational crime, the joint working group on combating international terrorism, the ASEAN Regional Forum on Security and ASEANAPOL.
The Chief of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia noted the balanced, unbiased approach of Singapore to the current regional and international problems, its focus on promoting the formation of a fair and secure world order and stressed the importance of the planned signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation and the Ministry for Home Affairs of Singapore.
“I regard as the top-priority of international police cooperation the task of combatting terrorism and extremist crimes,” the Russian Minister said, adding that the Russian MIA was ready to share its considerable experience in that field. Information could be exchanged both on the bilateral basis and through the channels of Interpol, of which both Russia and Singapore are members.
In this connection, the Chief of the Russian MIA noted the successful holding in July of this year in Singapore of the international security congress “World of Interpol 2017”.
“The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia is open to cooperation on the widest spectrum of law enforcement issues,” Vladimir Kolokoltsev said at the end of the meeting.
