Taiwan and Nauru Signed Police Cooperation Agreement to Fighting Transnational Crime
The "2018 International Forum on Police Cooperation: Combating Transnational Telecommunications Fraud" organized by the National Police Agency takes place on September 19 and 20, 2018. Taiwan's ally, the Republic of Nauru, was invited to join the event and the two countries signed the "Agreement on Police Cooperation between the Republic of China (Taiwan) and the Republic of Nauru." The representatives from six countries attended the signing ceremony, including the Kingdom of Eswatini, Belize, the Republic of Palau, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, and the Solomon Islands. Under their witness, Director-General Jachin Chen of National Police Agency and the Commissioner of Police of Nauru Police Force Corey Caleb signed the agreement on behalf of the two countries at 9:30 am at the Grand Hotel on September 20, 2018.
The National Police Agency of the Ministry of the Interior has spared no effort on promoting international police cooperation. Today the agency has made great strides again. The police cooperation agreement between Taiwan and Nauru will help to facilitate information exchange between law enforcement of the two nations and enhance the outcome of crime fighting. The six allied countries including Eswatini have already signed cooperative agreements with Taiwan since 2015. Today, with the six signatories gathering together and bearing witness to the signing ceremony is significant in the enhancement of multinational cooperation on fighting crime.
The police cooperation agreement between Taiwan and Nauru is effective to formulate an international cooperative mechanism, build a platform for bilateral exchange as well as establish cooperative principles and areas. In the future, the two states will focus on "exchanges and visits of personnel," "professional skill training," "practical experience sharing and technical assistance," and "law enforcement intelligence sharing and exchange" to promote exchanges, implement the agreement and ensure the solid performance of police cooperation.
With the modus operandi of transnational crime becoming more diverse, professional and organized, in addition to the arrangements about police cooperation with seven allied countries, Taiwan has also signed agreements on police cooperation or combating crime with the United States and Southeast Asian countries, aiming to form a high-quality collaborative model. The signing and implementation of the agreement on police cooperation between two parties are expected to control and crack down transnational crime effectively and protect public security and our people's safety with joint efforts.
