During the meeting, the parties noted that in recent years, Belarus and Uzbekistan is actively cooperating in all spheres — economic, cultural, law enforcement.
-In November 2019, the first meeting of the heads of the capital's divisions of the internal affairs bodies of the CIS countries was held in Tashkent, — says the head of the Tashkent police Department, Rustam Juraev. — The logical continuation of that meeting was today's signing of a memorandum of mutual understanding between the Main Departments of Internal Affairs of Tashkent and Minsk. In the future, this will allow us to jointly fight extremism, terrorism, transnational crime, drug trafficking, cybercrime, without unnecessary bureaucracy, because efficiency is important in our activities. I am sure that together with our Minsk colleagues, we will ensure the inevitability of punishment for criminals, no matter what country they are in.
The parties also agreed to exchange experience between employees, improve their skills. R. Juraev noted that the Minsk police has a good experience in combating crime in the field of high technologies.
In addition, a delegation of the Main Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation for Moscow is currently in Minsk on a working visit.
"We are constantly interacting with our Russian colleagues," says Ivan Kubrakov, head of the Minsk City Executive Committee's Internal Affairs Department. — During this meeting, special attention was paid to the problem of illicit drug trafficking. As you know, most of the potions in our country come from Russia, because the border between the countries is transparent. And only with close cooperation and prompt response will we be able to put a barrier to this problem. Today, for example, thanks to joint work, it was possible to detain not only single drug couriers, but also to block the supply channels of the potion.
Major General of the militia Kubrakov noted that international cooperation in the fight against cybercrime is also very important, because attackers are often located far beyond the borders of our country. Attention was also paid to this direction during the meeting.
