The Chinese government today recommended that Cambodian police continue cracking down on any Chinese people committing crimes in Cambodia.
Liao Jinrong, director-general of the International Cooperation Department of China’s Ministry of Public Security, met with Cambodian National Police chief General Neth Savoeun at National Police headquarters.
Kirth Chantharith, spokesman for the National Police, said the meeting between Mr Liao and Gen Savoeun was held to prepare a visit by China’s Minister of Public Security Zhao Kezhi to Cambodia in May.
He said that during the meeting, Mr Liao said that China supported Cambodian police cracking down on any Chinese person committing illegal acts in Cambodian territory.
Mr Chantharith said Chinese police have recommended that Cambodian police crack down on offences committed by Chinese people since 2010.
“Mr Liao Jinrong said that Chinese people who come to Cambodia must obey Cambodia’s laws and traditions and he suggested to Cambodian police to continue to crack down strictly on them, and not be concerned about the country’s friendship with China,” he said.
