Beijing – Chinese and Cambodian security chiefs on Tuesday vowed to strengthen cooperate against international trafficking in drugs and people, the Chinese government said. China’s Minister of Public Security Meng Jianzhu held talks with Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sar Kheng, saying the two sides “enjoyed increasing exchanges and pragmatic cooperation,” the ministry reported on its website. The two sides signed a cooperation agreement on “prohibiting illegal trafficking and abuse of drugs,” the report said.
