BEIJING, April 25 (Xinhua) -- China hopes to enhance cooperation with Belarus on security issues for the Belt and Road programs, a state councilor has said.

Guo Shengkun, who is also public security minister, made the remarks when meeting with Stanislav Zas, state secretary of the Belarusian Security Council on Monday.

He called on both countries to step up cooperation on security issues for the Belt and Road programs such as the China-Belarus Industrial Park and to jointly fight against terrorism, transnational crime and cyber crime under the consensus reached by heads of the two countries.

Zas said Belarus is willing to expand the width and depth of law enforcement cooperation with China so as to make joint efforts to meet challenges and threats.

The China-Belarus Industrial Park is being built on the outskirts of Minsk. The two countries have agreed to build the park into a model project under the Belt and Road Initiative, which connects Asia with Europe.
