BRUSSELS, Jan 22 (KUNA) -- Belgium and Turkey Tuesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding on police cooperation to fight terrorism, organized crime, human trafficking, illegal trafficking of drugs and money laundering.
They also signed a Joint Statement on Judiciary Cooperation to establish technical consultations on legal assistance, in full respect of national and international obligation.
The two signatures followed a meeting of Foreign Affairs, Justice and Interior Ministers of Belgium and Turkey in Brussels.
The aim of this meeting is to maintain a dialogue between the political authorities of both countries on issues of common interest, primarily on the fight against terrorism, police and judicial cooperation, as well as the cooperation on consular matters and migration management, said the ministers in a joint statement.
They also exchanged views on developments in the Middle East, including Syria, human rights and the relations between Turkey and the European Union.
This trilateral meeting is the second one at the ministerial level between the two countries, after a first meeting held in Istanbul in October 2008.
The Belgian delegation consisted of Didier Reynders, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Joelle Milquet Minister of Foreign Trade and European Affairs, Annemie Turtelboom Minister of Interior, Annemie Turtelboom Minister of Justice, and Maggie De Block Secretary of State for Asylum and Migration.
The Turkish delegation was composed of Ahmet Davutoglu Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sadullah Ergin Minister of Justice, and Idris Naim Sahin Minister of Interior. (end) nk.bs KUNA 222148 Jan 13NNNN
