Negotiations with Belarusian Deputy Interior Minister Alexander Kobrusev were held.

The Interior Ministry Academy, its international center for training, career enhancement, and retraining of personnel specializing in migration affairs and the counteraction of trafficking in persons, and the Mogilev Institute of the Belarusian Interior Ministry maintain high educational standards. We are ready to consider the possibility of training Chinese specialists in Belarus, including the mutual organization of language courses for law enforcement specialists of both sides.” As a result of the meeting Head of the China Criminal Police University Hao Hongkui and Head of the Interior Ministry Academy Vladimir Bachila signed an agreement on cooperation between the two higher education institutions.
