Signing the deal was a precondition for Georgian-Chinese higher level economic and tourism relations.

Crime, and especially an international crime, goes beyond the borders of only one nation and joint activities among states against crime is essential,” Mgebrishvili stated.

The Georgian Minister briefed his counterpart over completed and planned reforms in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and familiarized him with scheduled innovative projects and the activities of the Joint Operations multifunctional center in Tbilisi, applying high technologies.
