Indian prime minister and INTERPOL Chief discuss cooperation

NEW DELHI, India – International security cooperation was the focus of a meeting between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and INTERPOL Secretary General Jürgen Stock.

The meeting followed the opening of the 6th Global Focal Point Conference on Asset Recovery in New Delhi, where Prime Minister Modi underlined his country’s cooperation with INTERPOL: “The excellent and proactive cooperation between INTERPOL and Indian investigative agencies has resulted in the tracking of many fugitive criminals and their subsequent deportation or extradition. I would like this cooperation to deepen.”

Secretary General Stock said that in the face of threats which know no borders, such as cybercrime, and the escalation of the global threat posed by terrorism, cooperation between police services across all continents is more important than ever.

He praised the expertise of Indian law enforcement and recognized its role in enhancing security both in the region and around the world.

“International police cooperation with India is important not just for the security of its own citizens but also for the region and beyond, particularly at a time when the threat of terrorism is more globalized than ever,” added Mr Stock.

“Our meeting is therefore an opportunity to forge an ever-closer relationship, bound by our common resolve to achieve a safer world in the 21st century through our ongoing cooperation,” concluded the Head of INTERPOL.
