The document was inked here today by Tajik Minister of Interiors Abdurahim Qahhorov and Chinese Minister of Public Security Meng Jianzhu.

Under this agreement, China will provide three million yuan worth of police equipment to Tajik law enforcement authorities.

“This large practical aid will enhance Tajik law enforcement authorities’ efforts to provide public order and fight crimes, drug trafficking and extremism-related crimes,” Tajik minister of interiors noted during the document-signing ceremony.
