BEIJING, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- China and the Philippines on Tuesday agreed to seek stronger law enforcement cooperation ranging from fighting terrorism to combatting drug-trafficking.

The agreement came out of the meeting between China's police chief Meng Jianzhu and Philippine Secretary of Justice Leila de Lima in Beijing on Tuesday afternoon.

Meng, state councilor and minister of public security, thanked the Philippines for helping Chinese police investigate cross-border telecommunications fraud earlier this year.

Over the years China and the Philippines have worked productively in law enforcement thanks to the mutual understanding and close coordination, Meng said.

Meng called on the two countries to work more closely in fighting cross-border crimes, repatriating suspects, investigating into cases, improving law-enforcement capability, and protecting Chinese citizens and agencies in the Philippines.

Lima said the Philippine government takes its cooperation with China very seriously and would like to seek stronger bilateral and multilateral cooperation.

She highlighted the importance of deeper bilateral cooperation on anti-narcotics, anti-terrorism and combatting economic crimes.
