ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Interior and Narcotics Control Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that the level of cooperation between Pakistan and the UK should be raised a notch higher.
He said this while talking to Charles Farr, Director General of Security and Counter Terrorism, UK, who is representing the UK delegation at the Pak-UK Joint Working Group, here on Tuesday.
The minister said that Pakistan and UK enjoy extremely good relations and understanding but we need to enhance both the level and speed of the cooperation that exists between the two countries.
He said narcotics, terrorism and serious crimes have now become transnational issues. It is, therefore, of the utmost importance that the countries work together to negate the ulterior designs of the criminals and terrorists.

He also briefed the minister about various important issues which came under discussion during the morning session of the Joint Working Group held in the Ministry of Interior including organized crime, strengthening legislation, illegal migration, human trafficking, narcotics, forensic science and IEDs as well as training and capacity building of law enforcement agencies.
