BEIJING, March 26 (Xinhua) -- China and Lesotho agreed to strengthen cooperation on law-enforcement and security, as public security ministers from the two countries met in Beijing Monday.
"The two countries' law enforcement departments should step up pragmatic cooperation in chasing fugitives and illicit money, and law-enforcement capability building," said Chinese State Councilor Zhao Kezhi, who is also minister of public security.
He also called for more efforts to ensure the security of citizens and organizations in each other's countries.
"China always treats Lesotho as a sincere friend for common development," Zhao said, pledging to strengthen all-round cooperation with Lesotho and uphold justice while pursuing shared interests.
Mampho Mokhele, Lesotho's minister of police and public security, agreed to beef up cooperation with China in law-enforcement and security.
