“The Minister of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, General of the Police of the Russian Federation Vladimir Kolokoltsev, during his working visit to Seoul, held a meeting with the General Commissioner of the National Police Agency of the Republic of Korea, Lee Chul Sung,” said the official representative of the MIA of Russia, Irina Volk.

Vladimir Kolokoltsev noted that Russia and the Republic of Korea have historically formed friendly relations, which continue to develop in a wide range of areas. Joint actions of the two countries allow to effectively respond to common criminal challenges. At the same time, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia is interested in intensifying the interaction with regard to fighting all types of transnational crime.

Particular attention was paid during the meeting to security issues at mass sports events, which acquire high relevance on the eve of the largest international competitions in 2018 – the XXIII Winter Olympic Games in Korea and the Football World Cup in Russia. The head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia confirmed the intention to provide information to the Korean partners about persons posing potential danger, and expressed interest in obtaining similar information.
