They should also ensure security and safety for each other’s diplomatic representative agencies, entrepreneurs, students and expatriates.

The official called on the two sides to step up ties in improving the capacity of their law enforcement staff, especially in defence and military techniques, as well as in fighting hi-tech, drug and economic crimes.
